The Community of Hippie Wonderland is a massive, genial nation, renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, smutty television, and lack of airports. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 1.767 billion Hippie Wonderlandians 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.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 80.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Hippie Wonderlandian economy, worth 122 trillion Peace Medallions a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 69,200 Peace Medallions, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, park rangers perform full-body searches on suspected fungus smugglers, "What's the Frequency, Leader?" is a favorite phrase of backyard radio broadcasters when interrupting official diplomatic channels, and crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters. Crime is totally unknown. Hippie Wonderland's national animal is the Terrapin, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Hippie Wonderland is ranked 11,601st in the world and 4th in Oatland for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 2 Valid Endorsements.
