The Incorporated States of Hyperbia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Eibon with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 22.325 billion 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 juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Commerce. 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 government is spending billions of taxpayer tulu metals to support the Arms Manufacturing industry, inheritance tax has recently been abolished, the adult unemployment rate nears 100% as all available jobs have been filled by young children, and scenic tours are unheard of after most environmental laws were abolished. 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 1st in Pyoko and 223rd in the world for Highest Police Ratios, scoring 847 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
