The Brains Are In The Freezer of Hydroponic Nation is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Hydroponicus with a fair hand, and notable for its irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 22.419 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 is mainly concerned with Education, although the Environment and Healthcare are on the agenda. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.
Citizens recently voted in favour of declaring bubblewrap an 'abomination of nature', space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down, birth rates have hit an all-time low, and commercial jingles have been ham-handedly forced into world renowned symphonies. 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.
