Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Indebted State of Hobbovia is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Treasuary Master Tom with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, compulsory military service, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 7.298 billion Hobbovians 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 tiny government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Warre. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.2%.

The strong Hobbovian economy, worth 969 trillion Hobbeses a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 132,825 Hobbeses, with the richest citizens earning 8.5 times as much as the poorest.

The nation has always been at war with Bigtopia, bizarre-looking creatures called 'Leviathandogs' dominate wildlife preserves, teens are voting on which C-List pop star will be next to be evicted from the opera house, and the native owl population is in permanent hibernation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Hobbovia's national animal is the Leviathan, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Hobbovia is ranked 176,827th in the world and 76th in Commonwealth of Free Nations for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 10.45 Tourists Per Hour.
