The Precious Taters of Hobbitat is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Toeless Bob with an even hand, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, keen interest in outer space, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 29.909 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 Education, Law & Order, 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 14,241 trillion hairy toes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 476,159 hairy toes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers, airport security is provided by private companies, national chefs believe that you can eat anything so long as you deep fry it first, and retail stores are known for creating their own oddly-similar holidays in the months preceding any major festivity. 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 94,452nd in the world and 27th in Antarctica for Most Authoritarian, with 0.18 Stalins.
