The Nihilist Hippy Commune of Ummagumma is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minister Roger Waters with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, intelligent population of 25.545 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Equality, and Social Welfare. 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.

Re-education centers are being added to most prisons, dozens of additional foreign policy specialists have been sent to the country's WA Mission, new funding allows inner city teachers to replace school laptops almost as fast as they get stolen, and Ummagumma's famous countrysides are shrouded by wind farms. 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 159th in Wysteria and 114,297th in the world for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -26 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
