The %%Bobberino%% of Bobberino is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by LET'S GO BLUES with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, frequent executions, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 5.018 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 9.1%.

The frighteningly efficient LET'S GO BLUES economy, worth 813 trillion LET'S GO BLUESES a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 162,143 LET'S GO BLUESES, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 693,864 per year while the poor average 24,290, a ratio of 28.6 to 1.

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, nobody is allowed to mention what religion terrorists follow, and pet rocks are sold by the pound. 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 199,684th in the world and 9,708th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 54.86 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
