The Armed Republic of Hyenaton is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, pith helmet sales, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.866 billion Hyenatonians 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 large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hyenaton City. The average income tax rate is 90.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Hyenatonian economy, worth 268 trillion Yeen Beans a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 144,060 Yeen Beans, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Betting pennies on games of Go Fish is considered deviant, pop sensation "Jack and the Holograms" is storming the charts, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, and the ruling party has a devil of a time keeping order in the ranks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hyenaton's national animal is the Hyena, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Hyenaton is ranked 78,151st in the world and 3,643rd in The East Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 21.44 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
