OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Incorporated States of Hyperbia is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Eibon with an iron fist, and renowned for its irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 23.65 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 concentrates mainly on Defence, although Law & Order and Commerce are on the agenda. 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.

Organ donation is compulsory, birth rates have hit an all-time low, young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables, and the national Police Academies have dedicated infant wings. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the tulu metal.

Hyperbia is ranked 2nd in Pyoko and 120,626th in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -1,021 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
