Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Indebted State of Hobbovia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Treasuary Master Tom with an even hand, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 9.296 billion Hobbovians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Warre. The average income tax rate is 6.2%.

The powerhouse Hobbovian economy, worth a remarkable 1,532 trillion Hobbeses a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 164,830 Hobbeses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

It is a silent spring in Hobbovia, corporate lawyers are switching careers to the more lucrative field of green politics, prison libraries are being replaced with interrogation chambers, and there is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Hobbovia's national animal is the Leviathan, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Hobbovia is ranked 175,208th in the world and 3rd in A Sequestered Corner of the Globe for Longest Average Lifespans, with 28.69 Years.
