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 renowned for its anti-smoking policies, digital currency, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 5.884 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 aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Warre. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Hobbovian economy, worth 868 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 147,616 Hobbeses, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 506,439 per year while the poor average 31,579, a ratio of 16.0 to 1.

Prudishness is on the way out, the nation is proudly the least fertile in A Sequestered Corner of the Globe, skateboarding is considered a form of diplomacy, and the dead are minced up and sold to people in burger form. 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 117,252nd in the world for Most Pacifist, scoring -1,782 on the Lennon-Springsteen Scale.
