The Republic of Hospitallar Hydrus is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, rampant corporate plagiarism, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 242 million Hospitallars have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Defense, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. The average income tax rate is 46.9%.

The strong Hospitallar Hydrusian economy, worth 12.7 trillion Tempest Denarii a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 52,465 Tempest Denarii, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Randomly bombing neighboring countries has become the new national sport, mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field, demand for gourmet white truffles is on the rise, and small businesses are gobbled up almost daily by corporate giants. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hospitallar Hydrus's national animal is the Hydra, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Hospitallar Hydrus is ranked 32,880th in the world and 1,614th in The North Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 148.43 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
