The Calvitat of Hobbitat is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Toeless Bob with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 23.031 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.

Clowns are being rounded up and admitted to mental institutions, mining safety laws are often more expensive than what's being mined, political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations, and Hobbitat is notorious for its citizens' infidelity. 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 2nd in Antarctica and 187th in the world for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 27 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
