The Principality of Hyperico is a very large, safe nation, renowned for its pith helmet sales, ban on automobiles, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed population of 172 million Hypericoi are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 22.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Hypericoi economy, worth 7.11 trillion Hypoes a year, is led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 41,350 Hypoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Colonial subjects have Hypericoi culture shoved down their throats, cars are banned, citizens are barcoded to keep track of their movements, and high-income earners pay a 100% tax rate. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hyperico's national animal is the Hyena, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Hyperico is ranked 163,701st in the world and 18th in Hyperico for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 141.18 Tourists Per Hour.
