The Resurgence Bandwagon of Bobberino is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Bob with an iron fist, and remarkable for its triple-decker prams, digital currency, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 9.301 billion Morons are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company.

Bobberino's national animal is the leave and go, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.
