Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Halfway Habitable Haven of Hobbitat is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Toeless Bob with an even hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, unlimited-speed roads, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 24.11 billion Hobbitots enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

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 10,574 trillion hairy toes a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an amazing 438,612 hairy toes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

The government recently relinquished its monopoly on the mail service, the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, Ollie the Oiled Seal welcomes throngs of tourists to the newly opened Oil Oasis Water Park, and drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government. 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 69th in Antarctica and 145,766th in the world for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -65 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
