The Thin Mints R In The Freezer of Hydroponic Nation is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Hydroponicus with a fair hand, and notable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 21.917 billion Hydroponicans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded individuals juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Healthcare. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Retired racing Wombats are served truffles for breakfast, teenagers across the country are celebrating the defeat of a national curfew bill, women wear burqas to avoid unwanted male attention, and innocent defendants often plead guilty for fear of receiving a much harsher sentence before jury. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Hydroponic Nation's national animal is the Wombat, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Funyon.

Hydroponic Nation is ranked 19th in Wysteria and 936th in the world for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 91 Whatever.
