Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Precious Taters of Hobbitat is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Toeless Bob with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 26.37 billion Hobbitots 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.

The minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Industry. 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 12,633 trillion hairy toes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 479,071 hairy toes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

The mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, business meetings across the country are interrupted by the sound of squeaking whoopee-cushions, surrealist houses shaped like mushrooms and volcanoes dominate the wealthiest neighborhoods, and Hobbitat's free colleges struggle to maintain standards in the face of overwhelming demand. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Hobbitat's national animal is the lemming, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Hobbitat is ranked 2,479th in the world and 14th in Antarctica for Lowest Crime Rates, with 121.96 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
