OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Clobtastic Nation of Clobby is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Clobby with an even hand, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates. Its hard-nosed, hard-working population of 4.913 billion are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Commerce, and Defence. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Colby. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 76%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports industries.

Vile black smog from coal power plants has enveloped several major urban centres, Harry Potter books are banned, the government struggles to keep up with the endless list of petrol disasters, and penurious citizens die from easily remedied ailments because they aren't 'taking enough initiative'. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Clobby's national animal is the Cobbler, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Clobbytheism, and its currency is the Cobblestone.

Clobby is ranked 2nd in techartica and 1,583rd in the world for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 62 Whatever.
