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 complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, intelligent population of 25.433 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.

People reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space, vegetarianism is compulsory, and an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. 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 161st in Wysteria and 112,480th in the world for Safest, scoring -3,667.8 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
