The Dictatorship of Hespereia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lady Nymph with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, strictly enforced bedtime, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.843 billion Hespereians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of cecśria. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 69.6%.

The powerhouse Hespereian economy, worth 242 trillion teeths a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is 85,238 teeths, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 245,796 per year while the poor average 23,465, a ratio of 10.5 to 1.

Citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Hespereia, convicted felons are forced into slavery for their crimes, barbed wire entanglements and guard towers surround the cecśria Natural History Museum, and military pilots spend more time scraping feathers off their engines than flying their aircraft. Crime is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Hespereia's national animal is the chimaera, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Hespereia is ranked 55,638th in the world and 146th in USSD for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 88.03 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
