The Bird Is The Word of Hydroponic Nation is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Hydroponicus with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 25.888 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. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hydroponic Nation City. The average income tax rate is 38.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming Hydroponic Nationian economy, worth a remarkable 3,665 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 141,591 Funyons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.
Citizens may cast their vote over the internet or phone, a performance of the hit musical "Mamma Tua" has been delayed after squatters were found sleeping in the orchestra pit, Hydroponic Nation's free colleges struggle to maintain standards in the face of overwhelming demand, and new cases of Asbestosis are cropping up as quickly as hospitals can deal with them. 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.
