The Brains Are In The Freezer of Hydroponic Nation is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Hydroponicus with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, rampant corporate plagiarism, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 23.759 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 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 33.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming Hydroponic Nationian economy, worth a remarkable 3,162 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 133,096 Funyons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.
Inter-species marriages are ignored by the government, teenagers across the country are celebrating the defeat of a national curfew bill, crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters, and waste is frequently shipped to other countries. 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.
