The Nihilist Hippy Commune of Ummagumma is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prime Minister Roger Waters with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic population of 26.301 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 tiny, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Industry, Environment, and Social Policy are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bonny. The average income tax rate is 5.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ummagumman economy, worth a remarkable 5,326 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 202,513 love beads, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, the government is making attempts at curtailing the flood of spam emails with little progress, all judiciary cases are decided in the court of public opinion, and photographers can be found hiding behind the curtains in Prime Minister Roger Waters's bedroom. 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 6th in Wysteria and 148th in the world for Most Beautiful Environments, with 4,702.05 Pounds of Wildlife less Pounds of Concrete per square mile.
