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 deadly medical pandemics, sprawling nuclear power plants, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 6.075 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, although Education and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Warre. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Hobbovian economy, worth 897 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 147,655 Hobbeses, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 514,487 per year while the poor average 30,853, a ratio of 16.7 to 1.

Skateboarding is considered a form of diplomacy, the dead are minced up and sold to people in burger form, Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, and any citizen who cries is immediately assigned a psychiatrist. 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 10th in A Sequestered Corner of the Globe and 37,077th in the world for Most Inclusive, scoring 9 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
