The Incorporated States of Hyperbia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Eibon with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 23.104 billion Hyperbians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, pro-business individuals is mainly concerned with Defence, although Law & Order and Commerce are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tast. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing industries.

The new 'Things We Stole From Other Countries' exhibition at the National Museum of Antiquities is a hit, door-to-door salesmen are frequently beaten up by 'vigilantes', Pinkerton agents are called in to forcibly break up white collar strikes, and the armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hyperbia's national animal is the Shoggoth, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the tulu metal.

Hyperbia is ranked 2nd in Pyoko and 111,901st in the world for Most Beautiful Environments, with -18,768 Pounds of Wildlife less Pounds of Concrete per square mile.
