The United Powers of Hyderbourg is a colossal, socially progressive nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, smutty television, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 8.651 billion Hyderbourgians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Defense, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hyder City. The average income tax rate is 18.1%.

The all-consuming Hyderbourgian economy, worth a remarkable 1,371 trillion Hydes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 158,587 Hydes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

Voter turnout for the election of the Junior Assistant for Non-Digital Media Strategies has been unsurprisingly low, the government's stance on marriage is 'Let Hyderbourgians marry themselves', hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock", and citizens are encouraged to show displeasure with politicians by poking them with sharp metal sticks. Crime is totally unknown. Hyderbourg's national animal is the Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Islam.

Hyderbourg is ranked 88,564th in the world and 49th in The Confederacy of Free Nations for Most Influential, scoring 72 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
