Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Nihilist Hippy Commune of Ummagumma is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister Roger Waters with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, unlimited-speed roads, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 26.698 billion Ummagummen are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The relatively small, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Social Policy, and Industry are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bonny. The average income tax rate is 24.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ummagumman economy, worth a remarkable 5,515 trillion love beads a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 206,570 love beads, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators, parents live in fear of governmental 'child protection' squads, and public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Ummagumma's national animal is the far out Pink Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is love.

Ummagumma is ranked 15th in Wysteria and 5,851st in the world for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 93 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
