The Indebted State of Hobbovia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Treasuary Master Tom with a fair hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, prohibition of alcohol, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 10.902 billion Hobbovians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, corrupt 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 16.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hobbovian economy, worth a remarkable 1,955 trillion Hobbeses a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 179,340 Hobbeses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, citizens must pay to enjoy Hobbovia's pristine beaches, preschools put children down for naps with milk, cookies, and a gruesome story of vengeance, and organ donation is compulsory. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hobbovia's national animal is the Leviathan, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Hobbovia is ranked 164,244th in the world and 3rd in A Sequestered Corner of the Globe for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 11.2 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
