The Minister of Defense of Bobberinov2 is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Spammer in Chief with a fair hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.611 billion Bobberinans are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Minas Tirith. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.7%.

The thriving Bobberinov2ian economy, worth 188 trillion Bobs a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. Average income is 72,041 Bobs, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 260,799 per year while the poor average 14,193, a ratio of 18.4 to 1.

Corporations donate huge sums of money to favored politicians, Bobberinov2 has designated Minas Tirith as its capital city, Spammer in Chief has just been declared ruler of Bobberinov2 in an international press conference, and Roman Catholicism has been named as Bobberinov2's national religion. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Bobberinov2's national animal is the frattface, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Bobberinov2 is ranked 148,380th in the world and 431st in Birb for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -8.37 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
