The Militant Order of Hospitallar Hydrus is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Giovanni Kaliburn with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 3.239 billion Hospitallars 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Urbe Tempestatum Regem. The average income tax rate is 80.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hospitallar Hydrusian economy, worth 359 trillion Tempest Denarii a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 111,124 Tempest Denarii, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is avowedly secular, the new Hospitallar Hydrusian-made OS is buggier and more inconvenient than a horse-drawn carriage, parents dread their examinations more than their children, and it is illegal for a parent to tell a child to stop eating their boogers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hospitallar Hydrus's national animal is the Hydra, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Ordo Hydrus.

Hospitallar Hydrus is ranked 188,384th in the world and 7,686th in The North Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 30.1 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
