The Robot of Hoffania is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Maximillian III with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, prohibition of alcohol, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.453 billion Hoffanians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Novus Romanum. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 37.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Hoffanian economy, worth 686 trillion Silver Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 92,104 Silver Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 277,140 per year while the poor average 23,878, a ratio of 11.6 to 1.

Epileptic patients switch their medications to whichever has a 'buy one get one free' offer, the Finance Ministry posts hourly updates on where taxpayer money is spent, Jennifer Government is banned, and the nation grinds to a halt for afternoon tea. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. Hoffania's national animal is the Robot, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Violetism.

Hoffania is ranked 232,871st in the world and 7,441st in the Rejected Realms for Fattest Citizens, with 5.02 Obesity Rate.
