Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Indebted State of Hobbovia is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Treasuary Master Tom with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, pith helmet sales, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 9.855 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 6.5%.

The powerhouse Hobbovian economy, worth a remarkable 1,628 trillion Hobbeses a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 165,223 Hobbeses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours, conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, the police are destroying all photographic evidence of their own existence, and 9 out of 10 consumers think that vitamins can cure cancer. 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 32,201st in the world and 1st in A Sequestered Corner of the Globe for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 3,137.75 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
