The Brains Are In The Freezer of Hydroponic Nation is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Hydroponicus with a fair hand, and renowned for its public floggings, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 22.847 billion Hydroponicans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Law & Order aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 32.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Hydroponic Nationian economy, worth a remarkable 2,998 trillion Funyons a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling and Tourism. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 131,225 Funyons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

The government seizes all major gold finds, the government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments, political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations, and Wombat is one of the most popular forenames in Hydroponic Nation. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Hydroponic Nation's national animal is the Wombat, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Hydroponic Nation is ranked 55th in Wysteria and 8,873rd in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 201 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
