The Calvitat of Hobbitat is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Toeless Bob with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 23.036 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 Healthcare. 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.

Mining safety laws are often more expensive than what's being mined, political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations, Hobbitat is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, and city sidewalks are crowded with overweight people. 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 8th in Antarctica and 727th in the world for Highest Police Ratios, scoring 528 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
