OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Incorporated States of Hyperbia is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Eibon with an iron fist, and notable for its irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 23.474 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 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.

One-stop superstores divide and conquer family businesses, environmental protestors are being rounded up and taken away in sinister black vans as a massive land development campaign gets underway, the nanny industry has had a boom after maternity leave was recently banned, and citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering'. 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 113,023rd in the world for Best Weather, with -7,346 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
