The Royal Family of Hyrule is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Princess Zelda with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ritual sacrifices, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 14.623 billion Hyruleans are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.

The tiny, corrupt, liberal, well-organized government prioritizes Industry, with Education and Defense also on the agenda, while Environment and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hyrule Castle Town. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Hyrulean economy, worth a remarkable 1,427 trillion rupees a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Woodchip Exports, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 97,595 rupees, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 320,055 per year while the poor average 22,335, a ratio of 14.3 to 1.

The newspaper industry is subsidised by the government in order to keep it afloat, there have been reports of people marrying housepets, a chain of pubs that cater solely to children have recently been unveiled, and homeless people are periodically found dead upon altars to assorted deities. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Hyrule's national animal is the Deku, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Hylian Mythology.

Hyrule is ranked 52,953rd in the world and 2nd in Hyrule for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 3,642.2 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
