The Incorporated States of Hyperbia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Eibon with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 22.925 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 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 commercialisation of highly deadly weapons has instilled Hyperbia with a very polite populace, wealthy parents-to-be can select their perfect baby, the lowest age at which one can marry has been recently lowered to 12, and surrealist houses shaped like mushrooms and volcanoes dominate the wealthiest neighborhoods. 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 112,248th in the world for Longest Average Lifespans, scoring -143 on the Enoch Index.
