Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Precious Taters of Hobbitat is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Toeless Bob with a fair hand, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, free-roaming dinosaurs, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 26.544 billion Hobbitots hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

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 12,698 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 478,398 hairy toes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Royalist is the most offensive slur in the Hobbitatian language, Toeless Bob's new android secretary is the latest media darling, debates on whether toilet seats should be left up or down are increasingly commonplace, and motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours. 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 147,659th in the world and 75th in Antarctica for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -20 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
