The End of an Era of Bobberino is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Bob with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, flagrant waste-dumping, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 6.719 billion Lilyputans 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, 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. The average income tax rate is 16.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Dumb economy, worth a remarkable 1,042 trillion Endgames a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 155,144 Endgames, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Newspapers are running a front-page picture of Bob holding a crowbar and standing over a bloodied stockbroker, police protocol is to arrest anyone who looks a bit foreign, nobody is allowed to mention what religion terrorists follow, and pet rocks are sold by the pound. 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 Conclusion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Reminiscing.

Bobberino is ranked 233,744th in the world and 8,869th in The North Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -334.78 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
