The Element of Hydrogen is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Electron with an iron fist, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, zero percent divorce rate, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 7.953 billion Hydrogenians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Law & Order, with Defense, Administration, and Environment also on the agenda, while International Aid and Public Transport aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Proton. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 48.2%.

The very strong Hydrogenian economy, worth 463 trillion Golds a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Pizza Delivery, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 58,280 Golds, with the richest citizens earning 9.6 times as much as the poorest.

Studio executives abandon tragic stories of star-crossed lovers because "it's been done", prisoners can't do number twos without their "toilet buddy" present, churches across the land are hurriedly installing auto-tune for their choirs, and parents dread their examinations more than their children. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Hydrogen's national animal is the Elephant, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Hydrogen is ranked 10,598th in the world and 240th in NationStates for Largest Black Market, with 92.6 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
