The Free Land of La Comte is a large, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its frequent executions, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed population of 74 million Hobbits are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 21.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Hobbit economy, worth 2.52 trillion Biftons a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Soda Sales, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 33,995 Biftons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Aeroplane cockpits no longer have altimeters or airspeed indicators, evasive politicians don't fail to strongly commit to not committing to a course of non-inaction, earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss, and the only women behind bars are barmaids. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. La Comte's national animal is the Green Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

La Comte is ranked 152,976th in the world and 84th in Middle Earth for Most Politically Free, scoring 45.33 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
