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 notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, digital currency, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 8.041 billion Hobbovians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

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 5.1%.

The thriving Hobbovian economy, worth a remarkable 1,162 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 144,611 Hobbeses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Maintaining economic growth is no laughing matter, the Supreme Court vehemently protects civil rights and the right to privacy, tech-mad citizens think that the laser-powered bread-slicer uPhone App is the coolest thing since sliced bread, and Members of Parliament are often found living in cardboard boxes. 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 18,262nd in the world and 1st in A Sequestered Corner of the Globe for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 4,657.84 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
