The Democratic States of Greater Hyrulang is a massive, genial nation, ruled by the Democratically Elected Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.743 billion Greater Hyrulangians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lenova. The average income tax rate is 94.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Greater Hyrulangian economy, worth 210 trillion gold coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 120,655 gold coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of, popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs, excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions, and there's a hole in the heart of every Greater Hyrulangian city. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greater Hyrulang's national animal is the horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is No Official Religion.

Greater Hyrulang is ranked 128,884th in the world and 4,855th in the South Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 218.75 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
