The Scientific Directorate of Hydrian is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Director-General Alastair Kanakaris with an even hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, zero percent divorce rate, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate, cheerful population of 15.056 billion Hydrians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Hydrious. The average income tax rate is 99.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Hydrian economy, worth a remarkable 3,664 trillion DMUS a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 243,383 DMUS, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

High school band practice is often crashed by technicolor-clad ravers, the government snoops on private internet connections, the minority inevitably have their addenda vetoed, and the government loves seeing the little people fight. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hydrian's national animal is the Hydrian Leviathan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Hydrian is ranked 275,670th in the world and 1,139th in Europe for Fattest Citizens, with 1.35 Obesity Rate.
