#### Abstract

We give a general framework of equivariant model category theory. Our groups $G$, called Hopf groups, are suitably defined group objects in any well-behaved symmetric monoidal category $\mathscr{V}$. For any $\mathscr{V}$, a discrete group $G$ gives a Hopf group, denoted $I[G]$. When $\mathscr{V}$ is cartesian monoidal, the Hopf groups are just the group objects in $\mathscr{V}$. When $\mathscr{V}$ is the category of modules over a commutative ring $R, I[G]$ is the group ring $R[G]$ and the general Hopf groups are the cocommutative Hopf algebras over $R$. We show how all of the usual constructs of equivariant homotopy theory, both categorical and model theoretic, generalize to Hopf groups for any $\mathscr{V}$. This opens up some quite elementary unexplored mathematical territory, while systematizing more familiar terrain.
