The Militarized Dictatorship of Bob the 3ed is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Bob The 186th with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 37.913 billion Bobites are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Healthcare, Education, and Social Policy are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Bob Mansion. The average income tax rate is 74.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bobite economy, worth a remarkable 7,883 trillion DinHars a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 207,926 DinHars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Possession of tomato seeds with intent to garden is a criminal offence, more money is spent on policing the welfare system for abuse than on the welfare system itself, there's a bright dawn ahead for Bob the 3ed, and RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Bob the 3ed's national animal is the Clone, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Bobism.

Bob the 3ed is ranked 202,688th in the world and 1st in Bob the 3ed for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -10.2 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
