The Nihilist Hippy Commune of Ummagumma is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minister Roger Waters with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, intelligent population of 25.748 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 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.

Teenagers across the country are celebrating the defeat of a national curfew bill, cheese has become the new icon of political dissent, postmen have been arrested in job lots for selling junk mail as home insulation, and fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets. 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 54th in Wysteria and 24,090th in the world for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 70 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
