Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Halfway Habitable Haven of Hobbitat is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Toeless Bob with an even hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 24.378 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.

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 10,726 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. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 440,006 hairy toes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

A new generation of aquariumless hotels are being built under government supervision, 'Police Academy 36' and 'Sharknados On A Plane' are vying for top spot at the box-office, the national sporting identity is represented by a talking burger and a singing smartphone, and all major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course.

Hobbitat is ranked 1st in Antarctica and 87th in the world for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 21 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
