Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Precious Taters of Hobbitat is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Toeless Bob with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, absence of drug laws, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 26.906 billion Hobbitots enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The tiny, corrupt government 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 12,790 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 475,387 hairy toes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Toeless Bob's relatives have been married into the royal families of foreign nations against their will, sections of the police receive paramilitary training, political scientists despair as the national mascot election eclipses all others in voter enthusiasm, and science centers and state of the art laboratories are ubiquitous. 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 122,417th in the world and 55th in Antarctica for Most Authoritarian, with 0.05 Stalins.
