The Calvitat of Hobbitat is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Toeless Bob with an even hand, and remarkable for its restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 22.644 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 Commerce. 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.

Bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms, Hobbitat is building an army to protect its overseas territories, all major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, and elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume. 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 81st in Antarctica and 113,784th in the world for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -262 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
