The Commonwealth of Hydrusite is a huge, socially progressive nation, ruled by Prime Minister Mitchell McKinson with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 808 million Hydrusians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Old Delwick. The average income tax rate is 51.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Hydrusitean economy, worth 76.6 trillion Aurens a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 94,837 Aurens, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The official Hydrusitean Phrase Book weighs as much as a small child, the navy is chrome-plating its battleships to prevent rust, captains must wait until all rats are safe before jumping ship, and home renovation shows are increasingly popular. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Hydrusite's national animal is the Beaver, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Hydrusite is ranked 23,356th in the world and 110th in Conch Kingdom for Healthiest Citizens, with 9.59 bananas ingested per day.
