Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Incorporated States of Hyperbia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Eibon with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, smutty television, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 29.522 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.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tast. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Hyperbian economy, worth an astonishing 21,436 trillion tulu metals a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is a breathtaking 726,106 tulu metals, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,778,018 per year while the poor average 42,948, a ratio of 111 to 1.

Eibon's media campaigns take a hiatus around exam week, jaywalking is punishable by public flogging, nobody is allowed to mention what religion terrorists follow, and takeaway food bought on the weekend now comes with fifty percent more sweat and tears. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Hyperbia's national animal is the Shoggoth, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Hyperbia is ranked 128,880th in the world and 1st in Pyoko for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 327.16 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
