The Nihilist Hippy Commune of Ummagumma is a gargantuan, socially progressive 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 25.599 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.

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 the Environment. 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.

Consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, the new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction, truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news, and the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall. 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 14th in Wysteria and 333rd in the world for Most Godforsaken, with 419 Dawkins.
