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 unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate, intelligent population of 25.215 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 Healthcare. 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.

The streets are plagued with knife-wielding madmen, racial and religious segregation has become rife as the various groups are loath to mingle, Ummagumma's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, and midnight pizza breaks are common among the work-from-home population. 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 95th in Wysteria and 82,671st in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.12 Stalins.
