The Rapid Ageing of Gamma Hydra II is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Doris Atkins with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and compulsory military service. The quiet, industrious population of 2.865 billion Gamma Hydrans are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gamma Hydra II City. The average income tax rate is 55.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Gamma Hydran economy, worth 63.8 trillion Federation Credits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 22,272 Federation Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is considered unpatriotic to learn a foreign language, children are expected to carve their own toys, it is illegal to make racist remarks in public, and Gamma Hydrans believe the only thing that will make you happy is being unhappy with who you are. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gamma Hydra II's national animal is the Radiation Disease, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Gamma Hydra II is ranked 189,789th in the world and 119th in United Earth Space Probe Agency for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.74 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
