The Golden Gate Views of Sidesh0w B0b is a massive, safe nation, ruled by the late Sideshow Bob's sister - Roberta with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.864 billion 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 enormous, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of San Francisco. The average income tax rate is 74.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Sideshow Bob economy, worth 94.2 trillion fares a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 32,881 fares, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Student athletes gaze forlornly at abandoned BART Systemball fields, a handful of megacorporations own every "craft brewery" in the nation, soldiers' positions are given away by the glint of their bayonets, and no suburban lawn is complete without barbed wire and landmines. Crime, especially youth-related, 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 System, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is the church of getting out of here.

Sidesh0w B0b is ranked 206,067th in the world and 3rd in KAMP KRUSTY for Nudest, with 24.25 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
