The Discounted Republic of HypErcApitAl is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Hypercapitalian Oligarchical Govt with an iron fist, and renowned for its smutty television, rampant corporate plagiarism, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 999 million HypErcApitAlians 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 relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of City DXC9. The average income tax rate is 30.1%.

The frighteningly efficient HypErcApitAlian economy, worth 173 trillion pfennigs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 173,698 pfennigs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

The backs of 'No Trespassing' signs were made for you and me, many believe that Hypercapitalian Oligarchical Govt's head is big enough for the sun to orbit around it, the nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields, and politicians frequently make unusual poses during speeches in hopes of inspiring the next internet fad. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. HypErcApitAl's national animal is the squirrel, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

HypErcApitAl is ranked 193,137th in the world and 119th in Grace of Gaia for Most Primitive, scoring -303.54 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
