The Calvitat of Hobbitat is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Toeless Bob with an even hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 22.499 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.

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 Commerce. 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.

Lemmings are becoming popular in pet stores nationwide, a survey of the nation's rivers and children has shown that pesticide levels are at an all-time regional high, the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, and the automotive industry soaks up huge government handouts. 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 73rd in Antarctica and 111,073rd in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -460 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
