The Bird Is The Word of Hydroponic Nation is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Hydroponicus with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 38.875 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 receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Greenleaf. The average income tax rate is 68.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hydroponic Nationian economy, worth a remarkable 5,964 trillion Funyons a year, is highly specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Book Publishing, Gambling, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 153,435 Funyons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, undersea volcanoes receive strongly worded letters for violating environmental regulations, no one is quite sure what many government officials look like, and meat prices are soaring as the farming industry struggle under government-imposed restrictions. 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 272,898th in the world and 70th in Wysteria for Most Patriotic, with 0.33 flags saluted per person per day.
