The Incorporated States of Hyperbia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Eibon with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, parental licensing program, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 24.075 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.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order and Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tast. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Hyperbian economy, worth an astonishing 16,210 trillion tulu metals a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is a breathtaking 673,343 tulu metals, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 6,006,220 per year while the poor average 10,049, a ratio of 597 to 1.

All major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, the nation is experiencing a severe shortage of sporting events, a survey of the nation's rivers and children has shown that pesticide levels are at an all-time regional high, and the state has declared war on the environment and environmentalists by association. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Hyperbia's national animal is the Shoggoth, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Hyperbia is ranked 2nd in Pyoko and 116,126th in the world for Largest Public Transport Department, scoring -290 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
