The Hash-Slinging Slasher of Bobberino is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Captain Spock with an iron fist, and notable for its triple-decker prams, infamous sell-swords, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 2.006 billion Bobberinoans are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.
The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Minas Tirith. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.7%.
The frighteningly efficient annoying economy, worth 319 trillion memes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 159,053 memes, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 717,348 per year while the poor average 21,717, a ratio of 33.0 to 1.
Citizens often pray for divine guidance in supermarkets, cities are engulfed by smog, the clergy of Roman Catholicism remains a single-sex institution, and friendly fire incidents usually result in severe burns. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bobberino's national animal is the Ping, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.
