Population777 million



The Dominion of Hyranas is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its daily referendums, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 777 million Hyranasians 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 large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eunomis. The average income tax rate is 64.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Hyranasian economy, worth 51.8 trillion pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 66,615 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The "feminist protest" defence is increasingly common for cases of armed robbery, surveillance cameras are banned, it is technically inaccurate to call the dead 'worm food', and discarded pennies litter the streets. Crime is totally unknown. Hyranas's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Hyranas is ranked 27,691st in the world and 769th in the South Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 76 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
