Overview Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Bird Is The Word of Hydroponic Nation is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Hydroponicus with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 25.722 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, although Environment and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Law & Order receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hydroponic Nation City. The average income tax rate is 37.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Hydroponic Nationian economy, worth a remarkable 3,634 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 141,286 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.

Hydroponic Nation is ranked 37,916th in the world and 32nd in Wysteria for Highest Drug Use, scoring 92.8 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
