The Infernal Machinations of Hobbledehoy ITA is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, notable for its punitive income tax rates, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 27.159 billion Hobbledehoy ITAians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 81.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Hobbledehoy ITAian economy, worth 126 trillion watchings a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports and Information Technology. Average income is 4,649 watchings, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are forced to donate blood once every three months, all weapon research has been banned, all recreational drugs are legal, and torture is illegal. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hobbledehoy ITA's national animal is the always, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Hobbledehoy ITA is ranked 169,230th in the world and 1st in FluffyBunnikins4 for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 5.68 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
