The Empire of Hynerian is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Dominar Rygel XVI with an iron fist, and renowned for its enslaved workforce, daily referendums, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.329 billion Hynerians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hyneria. The average income tax rate is 73.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Hynerianian economy, worth a remarkable 1,503 trillion Mesots a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 237,484 Mesots, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

A suspicious number of male students have joined the Ladies' Wrestling League, the government's suggestions box is curiously empty these days, airplane passengers have been known to stuff pillows in their jackets to get extra arm room, and citizens are encouraged to show displeasure with politicians by poking them with sharp metal sticks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hynerian's national animal is the Hynerian Horned Frog, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Hynerian is ranked 166,078th in the world and 5,246th in the Pacific for Most Stationary, with 18.99121701228 Days.
