Regional Influence: Eminence Grise
The Kneel Before Barbie of Hydroponic Nation is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Hydroponicus with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 20.898 billion live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.
There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded 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.
The rich are forced to sell their cars to pay for more police to prevent their cars from being stolen, wealthy parents-to-be can select their perfect baby, the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, and vitriolic divorce proceedings have become prime-time television. 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.
