The Ur-Quan Masters of Hesperonis is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Lord 353 with an iron fist, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, smutty television, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, cheerful population of 37.639 billion Ur-Quans 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 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 22,885 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 Information Technology, Retail, and Gambling. Average income is a breathtaking 608,039 Sa-Matras, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,168,056 per year while the poor average 62,921, a ratio of 50.3 to 1.

Confused-looking pigeons slide gently off frictionless window ledges, there's a lot of hot air coming from the Capitol Building, family isn't who you're born with but who you abandon in foreign countries, and the tenet of free speech is held dear. 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 109th in the world and 3rd in Lazarus for Rudest Citizens, with 829.01 Insults Per Minute.
