OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Brains Are In The Freezer of Hydroponic Nation is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Hydroponicus with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 22.574 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.

Commercial jingles have been ham-handedly forced into world renowned symphonies, the airship business has been driven out of the country by strict regulations and high fines, airport security is provided by private companies, and students in Hydroponic Nation's schools rarely attend their classes. 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 152nd in Wysteria and 112,302nd in the world for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -6 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
