Overview Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Bird Is The Word of Hydroponic Nation is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Hydroponicus with a fair hand, and renowned for its public floggings, smutty television, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 27.693 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 government prioritizes Education, although Environment and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Law & Order receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hydroponic Nation City. The average income tax rate is 39.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hydroponic Nationian economy, worth a remarkable 3,925 trillion Funyons a year, is quite 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 reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 141,760 Funyons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

There is an abondance of ackawi and zartschmelzend in every Hydroponic Nationian grocery store, royalist is the most offensive slur in the Hydroponic Nationian language, popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs, and the nation's prisons are touted as the best weight loss programs money can't buy. 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 3,989th in the world and 16th in Wysteria for Longest Average Lifespans, with 90.54 Years.
