The Golden Gate Views of Sidesh0w B0b is a huge, orderly nation, ruled by the late Bob's twin - Sideshow Roberta with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 816 million Sideshow Bobs are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of San Fran. The average income tax rate is 77.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Sideshow Bob economy, worth 19.8 trillion fares a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Soda Sales industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 24,290 fares, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Edutainment video games are taking Sidesh0w B0b's students to the next level, there'll be no comeback tour for many former boy bands, the military refers to helpless combatants offering surrender as "sitting ducks", and Sideshow Bobs incessantly needle their doctors for relief. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sidesh0w B0b's national animal is the BART president, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Sidesh0w B0b is ranked 142,045th in the world and 7th in San Francisco for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 48 Workforce Participation Rate.
