The Democratic Republic of Hyperl3Land is a massive, genial nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working, democratic population of 1.098 billion Hyperl3Landians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Defense, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 9.8%.

The Hyperl3Landian economy, worth 58.9 trillion HyperCredits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, and Trout Farming. Average income is 53,639 HyperCredits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

Organ donation is compulsory, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, and pet owners must make a payment if their charges leave a deposit. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hyperl3Land's national animal is the Hyper Exited Owl-bear, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Hyperl3Land is ranked 115,114th in the world and 4th in Celeasukomi for Most Developed, scoring 55.6 on the Human Development Index.
