Overview Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Bird Is The Word of Hydroponic Nation is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Hydroponicus with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 26.85 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 government prioritizes Education, with Environment and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Law & Order are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hydroponic Nation City. The average income tax rate is 39.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Hydroponic Nationian economy, worth a remarkable 3,772 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 140,506 Funyons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators, teenagers can't decide if they're more embarrassed by their parents or the country's leader, political dissidents are cut off from essential services, and anti-government web sites are springing up. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Hydroponic Nation's national animal is the Wombat, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Hydroponic Nation is ranked 175,127th in the world and 84th in Wysteria for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 11.22 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
