The Thin Mints R In The Freezer of Hydroponic Nation is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Hydroponicus with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 22.03 billion Hydroponicans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded individuals juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Healthcare. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Surveillance cameras are banned, murder rates are on the rise as the popularity of soylent products grows, criminals are thrown to the Wombats to repay their debt to society, and public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. Hydroponic Nation's national animal is the Wombat, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Funyon.

Hydroponic Nation is ranked 139th in Wysteria and 111,443rd in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring -6 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
