The Traitorous Wasteland of Bobogoobo is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its ban on automobiles. The compassionate, intelligent population of 15.606 billion Bobogoobo have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Social Welfare, Education, and the Environment. The average income tax rate is 93%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Recruitment posters proclaim the army to be both fabulous and fashionable, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, organ donation is compulsory, and the lowest age at which one can marry has been recently lowered to 12. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bobogoobo's national animal is the Jabberwock, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Franco.

Bobogoobo is ranked 3,970th in the Pacific and 110,944th in the world for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring -13 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
