Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Halfway Habitable Haven of Hobbitat is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Toeless Bob with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 24.718 billion Hobbitots enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nutbush City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Hobbitatian economy, worth an astonishing 10,910 trillion hairy toes a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an amazing 441,379 hairy toes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,278,280 per year while the poor average 120,775, a ratio of 10.6 to 1.

The nation has become a pariah for giving pirates letters of marque, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, Coco the Clown has been elected to the nation's parliament, and citizens simply have to point a weapon at a government official to get what they want. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hobbitat's national animal is the lemming, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Hobbitat is ranked 35th in Antarctica and 54,852nd in the world for Most Extreme, scoring 19 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
