The Bird Is The Word of Hydroponic Nation is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Hydroponicus with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 37.535 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 are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Greenleaf. The average income tax rate is 66.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hydroponic Nationian economy, worth a remarkable 5,696 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 151,760 Funyons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's diplomats shake hands with those whose hands are drenched in the blood of innocents, a widely accepted trade policy is "tit-for-tat", there are traffic jams at sea as diligent customs officers check every part of every ship, and Hydroponicans submit requests for a date in writing with an enclosed RSVP card. 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 13,698th in the world and 20th in Wysteria for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,288.14 tourists per hour.
