The Generically Named Nation of Bobs raider puppet is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Bob with an iron fist, and notable for its complete absence of social welfare. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 10.553 billion are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, pro-business government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crasheropolis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 51%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.
The government seizes all major gold finds, naturists are jailed regularly for indecent exposure, Bob is the self-declared God of all Bobs raider puppet, and organ donation is compulsory. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Bobs raider puppet's national animal is the fenda, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Raiderism, and its currency is the raider cheese.
