The Militant Order of Hospitallar Hydrus is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Giovanni Kaliburn with an iron fist, and renowned for its parental licensing program, keen interest in outer space, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.249 billion Hospitallars are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Urbe Tempestatum Regem. The average income tax rate is 80.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hospitallar Hydrusian economy, worth 248 trillion Tempest Denarii 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 Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 110,594 Tempest Denarii, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The citizenship exam requires years of study to actually pass, all footpaths have tollbooths, courtrooms can be a little sketchy, and engaged partners detail their fiancés' private lives in detail to prurient bureaucrats. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hospitallar Hydrus's national animal is the Hydra, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Ordo Hydrus.

Hospitallar Hydrus is ranked 6,737th in the world and 364th in The North Pacific for Most Secular, with 97.2 Atheism Rate.
