The Community of Hippy Ice Cream is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Ben N Jerry with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 7.649 billion Hippy Ice Creamians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Half Baked. The average income tax rate is 79.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Hippy Ice Creamian economy, worth 255 trillion Chunky Monkeys a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 33,467 Chunky Monkeys, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Selling your granddad's clothes requires an incredible amount of paperwork, bald-headed monks sit around the National Meditation Park looking smugly content, only adults may purchase violent video games, and Hippy Ice Creamian novella fans become unusually flustered when thinking about Ben N Jerry. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hippy Ice Cream's national animal is the Cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Americoneism.

Hippy Ice Cream is ranked 119,599th in the world and 105th in International Democratic Union for Most Developed, scoring 55.26 on the Human Development Index.
