The Democratic States of Greater Hyrulang is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by the Democratically Elected Leader with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.501 billion Greater Hyrulangians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lenova. The average income tax rate is 93.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Greater Hyrulangian economy, worth 170 trillion gold coins 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 Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 113,785 gold coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Large sections of Greater Hyrulang have been named national reserves to protect the native tribes living there, the nation's atlases tend to go out of date every few weeks, a firework a day does not in fact keep the doctor away, and young children are learning advanced physics to scientifically disprove the existence of Santa Claus. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greater Hyrulang's national animal is the horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is No Official Religion.

Greater Hyrulang is ranked 199,172nd in the world and 7,349th in the South Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 0.44 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
