The Thin Mints R In The Freezer of Hydroponic Nation is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Hydroponicus with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 22.222 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, liberal 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.

Politicians are losing their jobs in a plan to make the government 'leaner and fitter', the number of students attending university has reached a record high, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, and the public health bureaucracy is wrapped in miles of red tape. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. 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 59th in Wysteria and 14,617th in the world for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 37 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
