Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Precious Taters of Hobbitat is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Toeless Bob with an even hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, ubiquitous missile silos, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 26.709 billion Hobbitots enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The minute, corrupt, liberal 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 12,738 trillion hairy toes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 476,941 hairy toes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Teenage male videogamers often suffer repetitive strain wrist injuries, meat-eating is frowned upon, a Antarctica Tourist Association survey has rated Hobbitat #1 for number twos, and the nation's official head of religious affairs is an atheist. 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 teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Hobbitat is ranked 16,376th in the world and 23rd in Antarctica for Most Developed, scoring 74.66 on the Human Development Index.
