The Calvitat of Hobbitat is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Toeless Bob with a fair hand, and notable for its restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 22.275 billion Hobbitots enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

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, Education, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nutbush City. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Uranium Mining, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Information Technology industries.

Citizens are frequently searched for illegal weapons, Coco the Clown has been elected to the nation's parliament, coalition governments are essential to passing new laws, and the lowest age at which one can marry has been recently lowered to 12. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hobbitat's national animal is the lemming, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the hairy toe.

Hobbitat is ranked 59th in Antarctica and 111,440th in the world for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -68 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
