Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Indebted State of Hobbovia is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Treasuary Master Tom with an even hand, and notable for its prohibition of alcohol, digital currency, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 5.721 billion Hobbovians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government prioritizes Defense, with Education and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Welfare and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Warre. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Hobbovian economy, worth 843 trillion Hobbeses a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 147,406 Hobbeses, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 505,716 per year while the poor average 31,534, a ratio of 16.0 to 1.

Leviathan is one of the most popular forenames in Hobbovia, abortions are routinely performed in Hobbovia's hospitals, prudishness is on the way out, and the nation is proudly the least fertile in A Sequestered Corner of the Globe. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hobbovia's national animal is the Leviathan, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Hobbovia is ranked 9th in A Sequestered Corner of the Globe and 121,890th in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring -4 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
