The Hash-Slinging Slasher of Bobberino is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Captain Spock with an iron fist, and renowned for its flagrant waste-dumping, keen interest in outer space, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 1.972 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 312 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.

Bobberino is ranked 44,392nd in the world and 2,254th in The North Pacific for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 74.35 Workforce Participation Rate.
