The Psychedelic Community of Hippies is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by That Hippie Over There with a fair hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, absence of drug laws, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 18.977 billion Hippiesians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Haight-Ashbury. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Hippiesian economy, worth a remarkable 4,242 trillion hits a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 223,545 hits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A weakened police force struggles to maintain law and order, pareidolic SETI scientists swear there's a message from aliens hidden within pi, lending money has become a major liability, and Jennifer Government is a bestseller. Crime is totally unknown. Hippies's national animal is the dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Peace.

Hippies is ranked 1,207th in the world and 2nd in Hippies for Smartest Citizens, with 217.58 quips per hour.
