Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Precious Taters of Hobbitat is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Toeless Bob with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, unlimited-speed roads, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 28.344 billion Hobbitots enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Industry. 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 13,508 trillion hairy toes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 476,606 hairy toes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The nation leads Antarctica for unlikely accidents and truffle consumption, citizens are frequently searched for illegal weapons, government officials sit helplessly as they are labelled 'Pompous Womples' by celebrities, and birth rates have hit an all-time low. 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 83,922nd in the world and 33rd in Antarctica for Highest Drug Use, scoring 65.2 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
