The Multiple Heads of Rock Hydra is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by MrHydra with an iron fist, and renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime, fear of technology, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 27.637 billion Rock Hydrans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Industry, with Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of HydraCity. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 60.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Rock Hydran economy, worth a remarkable 3,706 trillion hydra heads a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Uranium Mining, Retail, Woodchip Exports, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 134,106 hydra heads, with the richest citizens earning 8.9 times as much as the poorest.

Takeaway food bought on the weekend now comes with fifty percent more sweat and tears, members of the government all have oddly similar anecdotes about their childhoods, there's no such thing as a safe bet, and the national anthem is a rather effective sleeping aid. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rock Hydra's national animal is the hydra, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Atheism.

Rock Hydra is ranked 29,317th in the world and 42nd in Nederland for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 3,941.8 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
