New Bobby

Population801 million


The Federal Republic of New Bobby is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, national health service, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 801 million New Bobbyians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Industry, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 45.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse New Bobbyian economy, worth 57.1 trillion Paws a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Pizza Delivery. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 71,347 Paws, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Demand for night vision goggles and boat engine mufflers has spiked, annual tax returns take at least two years to complete, the government's only official statement on the burning down of New Bobby City was that 'they shouldn't have been so careless', and the nation's train stations are widely considered to be the ugliest in The East Pacific. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, 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 31,853rd in the world and 756th in The East Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 6.95 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
