The Empire of Hrysos is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Miguel with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, anti-smoking policies, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate population of 2.537 billion Hrysosians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alegria. The average income tax rate is 65.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hrysian economy, worth 353 trillion Renzes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 139,361 Renzes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Hrysian companies generally just fire employees in lieu of giving them vacation, light entertainment isn't dead, Alegria spends billions upgrading public transport, and suburban backyards are seized by the government and turned into national parks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hrysos's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Chirch of Hrysos.

Hrysos is ranked 10,310th in the world and 577th in The North Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 85.57 Years.
