The Glorious Empire of Hydronica is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Leleaf Hydronica with an even hand, and renowned for its parental licensing program, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 10.186 billion Hydronicans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hydron. The average income tax rate is 73.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Hydronican economy, worth a remarkable 2,063 trillion Drofcoms a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 202,543 Drofcoms, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Demand for gourmet white truffles is on the rise, money can't buy happiness but it can buy immunity to prosecution, convicted conmen and fraudsters often leave prison to enter a career in politics, and travel bureaus double as recruiting centers for national intelligence agencies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hydronica's national animal is the Komodor Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Hydronica is ranked 99,566th in the world and 3,936th in the Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 203.14 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
