Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Kingdom of Light of HyperionSun is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Golden High King Gilgamesh with an even hand, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 8.163 billion Angels enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Welfare and Social Policy not funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of City of Gold. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Angel economy, worth a remarkable 1,479 trillion Drachmas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Information Technology, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 181,203 Drachmas, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 739,178 per year while the poor average 29,449, a ratio of 25.1 to 1.

Shaken martini sales have soared in nations surrounding HyperionSun, the native owl population is in permanent hibernation, the nation is known as the cheapskates of New Egypt, and government buildings are being cleansed for anything that might have racist connotations. Crime is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. HyperionSun's national animal is the Chimera, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Christianity.

HyperionSun is ranked 174,983rd in the world and 2nd in New Egypt for Most Primitive, scoring -179.91 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
