The Bird Is The Word of Hydroponic Nation is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Hydroponicus with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 34.724 billion Hydroponicans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Law & Order aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hydroponic Nation City. The average income tax rate is 57.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hydroponic Nationian economy, worth a remarkable 5,325 trillion Funyons a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling and Tourism. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 153,355 Funyons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The military maintains a fierce arsenal of 'Cure Missiles', sales of trenchcoats are on the rise, people who get diabetes can sue donut manufacturers, and ice-filled coffins are ominously positioned in the corner of every hospital ward. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Hydroponic Nation's national animal is the Wombat, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Hydroponic Nation is ranked 197,269th in the world and 71st in Wysteria for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -8.58 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
