The Kingdom of Light of HyperionSun is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Golden High King Gilgamesh with an even hand, and renowned for its enslaved workforce, compulsory military service, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 7.674 billion Angels are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.
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 4.0%.
The frighteningly efficient Angel economy, worth a remarkable 1,347 trillion Drachmas a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Information Technology, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 175,556 Drachmas, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 724,981 per year while the poor average 27,949, a ratio of 25.9 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.
