Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Indebted State of Hobbovia is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Treasuary Master Tom with an even hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, rampant corporate plagiarism, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 7.687 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Warre. The average income tax rate is 4.9%.

The very strong Hobbovian economy, worth a remarkable 1,051 trillion Hobbeses a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 136,750 Hobbeses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Witnesses have to run a gauntlet of mob enforcers to testify at trials, hammering a nail into a wall is an effective death sentence, legislators work 24/7 due to an influx of single-issue bills, and the newly revamped army is so eager for action that it has trouble keeping the peace. 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 16,326th in the world and 2nd in A Sequestered Corner of the Globe for Nudest, with 214 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
