The Bird Is The Word of Hydroponic Nation is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Hydroponicus with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 36.421 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, 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 Greenleaf. The average income tax rate is 66.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hydroponic Nationian economy, worth a remarkable 5,503 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 151,120 Funyons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government regularly reassures citizens that there are no monsters under their beds, Occam's razor has sliced to pieces any childhood belief in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy, many aides in Hydroponicus's office are known to be serial jaywalkers, and politicians are often seen attending regional history classes at primary schools within their constituencies. 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 1,375th in the world and 17th in Wysteria for Most Armed, with 18.01 Weapons Per Person.
