The Calvitat of Hobbitat is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Toeless Bob with a fair hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 22.839 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.

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.

The government has declared its commitment to multilateralism, litter collection has replaced fast food as the most popular after-school job, the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms, and loans are available for students from poor families. 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 66th in Antarctica and 112,776th in the world for Best Weather, with -2,071 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
