The Clear Plastic Bottle of H2o is healthy is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The One Who Gives Water with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, ubiquitous missile silos, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 9.484 billion Hydroteans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order and Education are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Brand New Fridge. The average income tax rate is 98.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Hydrotean economy, worth a remarkable 3,487 trillion Water Droplets a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 367,732 Water Droplets, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Diaper sales are up, Maxtopians are both starving and giddy after the Hydrotean military unleashed its biological weapons, a cat may look at a king and a dude can look at an ass, and citizens wouldn't recognise The One Who Gives Water if they passed one another on the street. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. H2o is healthy's national animal is the Two-Headed Lake Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Waterism Emperor Worship.

H2o is healthy is ranked 254,754th in the world and 8,005th in Osiris for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 7.65 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
