The Nihilist Hippy Commune of Ummagumma is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Prime Minister Roger Waters with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls. The compassionate, intelligent population of 25.354 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 Welfare, and Social Equality. 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.

UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, and it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws. 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 6th in Wysteria and 186th in the world for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 4,110.75 Net Tourists per hour.
