The Brains Are In The Freezer of Hydroponic Nation is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Hydroponicus with a fair hand, and notable for its public floggings, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 23.178 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, 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 34.7%.
The all-consuming Hydroponic Nationian economy, worth a remarkable 3,037 trillion Funyons a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 131,034 Funyons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.
The nation's youth is held blameless for all crimes, coalition governments are essential to passing new laws, the children of Hydroponic Nation are often remarked upon for their cheery attitude to extreme violence, and most governmental positions are filled by zealous nationalists.
