The Nihilist Hippy Commune of Ummagumma is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Prime Minister Roger Waters with a fair hand, and renowned for its hatred of cheese. The compassionate, intelligent population of 25.929 billion Ummagummen love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, socially-minded individuals concentrates mainly on Education, although Social Equality and Social Welfare are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bonny. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

The nation has an international reputation for compassion, government-run screening operations remove embryos with severe genetic disorders, mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field, and the nation is currently revamping its entire education system. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Ummagumma's national animal is the far out Pink Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, its national religion is love, and its currency is the love bead.

Ummagumma is ranked 163rd in Wysteria and 120,766th in the world for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring -15 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
