The Federation of Hypermeridionalis is a colossal, efficient nation, renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, conspicuous electricity pylons, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.093 billion Hypermeridionalisians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Spirituality, and Industry also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 90.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Hypermeridionalisian economy, worth a remarkable 1,951 trillion Gods a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Retail, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 383,104 Gods, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,735,643 per year while the poor average 51,885, a ratio of 33.5 to 1.

Citizens rise at daybreak every day for mandatory exercise, citizens no longer take selfies with their dead relatives at funerals, nighttime sightings of raccoons sporting Circle-A patches and bandanna masks are on the rise, and frequent broken zippers have resulted in safety pins making a fashion comeback. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Hypermeridionalis's national animal is the Demon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Hypermeridionalis is ranked 8,551st in the world and 143rd in the West Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 1,951 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
