The Ur-Quan Masters of Hesperonis is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Lord 353 with an iron fist, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, cheerful population of 40.406 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 effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Social Policy and Welfare not funded at all. 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 25,320 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 626,654 Sa-Matras, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,461,243 per year while the poor average 108,426, a ratio of 22.7 to 1.

Advertisers scramble to sponsor the broadcast of Lord 353's most personal functions, pilots always remember to send their doctors a Maxxmas card, most ambassadors from Hesperonis retire only a few years after being appointed, and the government offers gay men mildly offensive tips on how to pass as straight. 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 10,606th in the world and 563rd in Lazarus for Highest Poor Incomes, with 108,426.09 Standard Monetary Units.
