The Generically Named Nation of Bobs raider puppet is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Bob with an iron fist, and renowned for its irreverence towards religion, suspicion of poets, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 17.382 billion Bobs raider puppetians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crasheropolis. The average income tax rate is 18.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Bobs raider puppetian economy, worth a remarkable 3,065 trillion raider cheeses a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 176,361 raider cheeses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

There's a bright dawn ahead for Bobs raider puppet, money that should have gone to charities is instead spent on monitoring them, tourists call Bobs raider puppetian beach towns "the fine coastline", and sex education has become an intricate maze of stick figures and complex metaphors. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bobs raider puppet's national animal is the fenda, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Raiderism.

Bobs raider puppet is ranked 7,404th in the world and 364th in Lazarus for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 13,616.14 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
