The Ur-Quan Masters of Hesperonis is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Lord 353 with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, daily referendums, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 33.67 billion Ur-Quans enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, pro-business individuals juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. 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 19,721 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 585,722 Sa-Matras, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,867,182 per year while the poor average 68,641, a ratio of 41.8 to 1.

In a desperate bid for cheap airfare Ur-Quans can be seen jogging in a rubber suit just before flying, stuttering trypanophobes are doomed never to marry, citizens are bombarded with advertising from their compulsory miniature radios, and street gangs rule most of the nation's major cities. 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 44th in the world and 3rd in Lazarus for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 99.02 Workforce Participation Rate.
