The Republic of Mobilitus is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its frequent executions, fear of technology, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.561 billion Mobilitusians 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 enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Industry, with Public Transport and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Education and Environment are ignored. The average income tax rate is 83.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Mobilitusian economy, worth 397 trillion currencies a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, highly specialized black market in Retail, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 155,107 currencies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

Sales of superhero insurance have skyrocketed after the government abandoned the police in favor of vigilantes, Harry Potter books are banned, guns don't kill people — heroes do, and foreigners are treated with great suspicion. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Mobilitus's national animal is the animal, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Mobilitus is ranked 244,552nd in the world and 6,710th in the Rejected Realms for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -16 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
