The Incorporated States of Hyperbia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Eibon with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 23.262 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 is mainly concerned with 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.

Small businesses are gobbled up almost daily by corporate giants, only the rich can afford the latest medical innovations, scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway, and mining is the nation's most dangerous occupation. 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 125th in the world for Largest Defense Forces, with 1,597 Unexploded Ordnance per Square Mile.
