The Generically Named Nation of Bobs raider puppet is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Bob with an iron fist, and notable for its smutty television, pith helmet sales, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 20.218 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crasheropolis. The average income tax rate is 33.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bobs raider puppetian economy, worth a remarkable 3,670 trillion raider cheeses a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 181,530 raider cheeses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Religious education is a new government priority, professionals are ready to retire by the time they receive permission to use their credentials, serial killers are the country's biggest import, and water fights now end with thousands dead. 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 20,230th in the world and 1,157th in Lazarus for Smartest Citizens, with 61.48 quips per hour.
