Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Precious Taters of Hobbitat is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Toeless Bob with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 27.75 billion Hobbitots have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nutbush City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Hobbitatian economy, worth an astonishing 13,325 trillion hairy toes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 480,214 hairy toes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Protest songs are the nation's de facto anthems, a well-funded social safety net protects the unfortunate, fur coats have become the latest fashion trend, and fruit market traders let their stock spoil rather than reduce their prices at the day's end. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hobbitat's national animal is the lemming, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Hobbitat is ranked 54,179th in the world and 13th in Antarctica for Most Average, scoring 41.03 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
