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 remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 28.219 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 are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hydroponic Nation City. The average income tax rate is 40.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Hydroponic Nationian economy, worth a remarkable 3,985 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 141,242 Funyons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Bitter pastors forced to officiate gay marriage 'accidentally' pronounce couples "husband and abomination", town nameplates frequently raise giggles from passing tourists, workers have their fruitcake and eat it too, and bars are packed at all hours. 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 56,711th in the world and 49th in Wysteria for Most Extreme, scoring 20.8 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
