Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Incorporated States of Hyperbia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Eibon with an iron fist, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, pith helmet sales, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 28.968 billion Hyperbians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Defense. 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 20,920 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 722,197 tulu metals, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,721,338 per year while the poor average 43,515, a ratio of 108 to 1.

A typical fast food menu item could serve a small army, the nation's new foreign policy of 'very disproportionate retribution' has its neighbors on edge, the local custom of Biking With The Cars sends tourists home bemused or in body-bags, and it's a hard-knock life for the orphans doing factory work for a pittance. 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 179,498th in the world and 2nd in Pyoko for Longest Average Lifespans, with 16.4 Years.
