The Ur-Quan Masters of Hesperonis is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Lord 353 with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, absence of drug laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful population of 35.856 billion Ur-Quans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Delta Crateris V. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Hesperonisian economy, worth an astonishing 21,346 trillion Sa-Matras 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 Retail, Information Technology, and Gambling. Average income is a breathtaking 595,339 Sa-Matras, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,253,940 per year while the poor average 55,683, a ratio of 58.4 to 1.

The government helps teach children how to kill a man from six paces, the nation grinds to a halt for afternoon tea, Animal Liberationists are regularly arrested, and citizens are expected to be armed at all times. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Hesperonis's national animal is the Dnyarri, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Path of Now and Forever.

Hesperonis is ranked 52,054th in the world and 2,824th in Lazarus for Most Developed, scoring 63.1 on the Human Development Index.
