The Hash-Slinging Slasher of Bobberino is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Big Bob with an iron fist, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, digital currency, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 2.36 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 7.7%.

The frighteningly efficient annoying economy, worth 375 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 159,053 memes, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 717,348 per year while the poor average 21,717, a ratio of 33.0 to 1.

Citizens often pray for divine guidance in supermarkets, cities are engulfed by smog, the clergy of Roman Catholicism remains a single-sex institution, and friendly fire incidents usually result in severe burns. 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 166,623rd in the world and 9,258th in The North Pacific for Most Inclusive, scoring 12.73 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
