The Blue Empire of Bobberino is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by LET'S GO BLUES with an iron fist, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, smutty television, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 2.869 billion LET'S GO BLUES are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of LET'S GO BLUES. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.2%.

The frighteningly efficient LET'S GO BLUES economy, worth 461 trillion LET'S GO BLUES a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 160,904 LET'S GO BLUES, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 681,297 per year while the poor average 24,549, a ratio of 27.8 to 1.

The government is cracking down on subversive groups, newspapers are running a front-page picture of LET'S GO BLUES holding a crowbar and standing over a bloodied stockbroker, police protocol is to arrest anyone who looks a bit foreign, and nobody is allowed to mention what religion terrorists follow. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bobberino's national animal is the LET'S GO BLUES, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is LET'S GO BLUES.

Bobberino is ranked 30,834th in the world and 1,357th in The North Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 92 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
