The Hash-Slinging Slasher of Bobberino is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Captain Spock with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, triple-decker prams, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 1.978 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 7.5%.
The frighteningly efficient annoying economy, worth 313 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 158,588 memes, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 715,251 per year while the poor average 21,653, a ratio of 33.0 to 1.
People who stay late at the office often come home to find their own funeral being planned, citizens often pray for divine guidance in supermarkets, cities are engulfed by smog, and the clergy of Roman Catholicism remains a single-sex institution. 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.
