The Thin Mints R In The Freezer of Hydroponic Nation is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Hydroponicus with a fair hand, and remarkable for its irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 21.745 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.
Hydroponic Nation is building an army to protect its overseas territories, the new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction, anti-government web sites are springing up, and insurance companies charge extortionate premiums to cover homes near waterways. 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.
