The Nihilist Hippy Commune of Ummagumma is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Prime Minister Roger Waters with a fair hand, and remarkable for its hatred of cheese. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 24.62 billion 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Social Welfare, with areas such as Defence and Religion & Spirituality receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bonny. The average income tax rate is 99%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

It is mandatory to learn evolution in schools, new funding allows inner city teachers to replace school laptops almost as fast as they get stolen, pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are sold freely by the government, and the new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction. 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 frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is love, and its currency is the love bead.

Ummagumma is ranked 195th in Wysteria and 122,526th in the world for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -24 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
