The Federal Republic of New Bobby is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its feral children, compulsory military service, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 252 million New Bobbyians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Defense, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 27.6%.

The very strong New Bobbyian economy, worth 18.7 trillion Paws a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 74,249 Paws, with the richest citizens earning 9.0 times as much as the poorest.

Customer satisfaction with online delivery services is at an all time high, society and government have been organized according to a feudal hierarchy, stray cats threaten the fledgling avian-based internet, and couples are discouraged from marrying until they can rank their partner on a scale of one to ten. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Bobby's national animal is the Hedgehog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New Bobby is ranked 53,729th in the world and 1,727th in The East Pacific for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 5,879.06 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
