The Incorporated States of Hyperbanus is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Albion Constantine with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 4.632 billion Hyperbanusians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Healthcare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hydrotermopolis. The average income tax rate is 72.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hyperbanusian economy, worth 600 trillion E-Coins a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 129,545 E-Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Selfie stick use is a required Scout badge, military recruitment numbers are down as citizens object on 'moral grounds', bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms, and movement-triggered sensors mean that for every door that closes another one opens. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hyperbanus's national animal is the Bulky Golden Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Hyperbanus is ranked 155,279th in the world and 7,471st in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -1.67 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
