The United States of Bobertus is a huge, genial nation, notable for its digital currency. The quiet, industrious population of 392 million Boberts have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bob City. The average income tax rate is 20.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Bobertusian economy, worth 20.8 trillion Bumberts a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Cheese Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 52,987 Bumberts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Foreign policy is mostly just to smile and hope for the best, doctors who mutter "Oh my God" often lose their medical license, wigged-out hunters report playing croquet with the Queen of Hearts, and eminent domain has been abolished. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bobertus's national animal is the Parakeet, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Bobertus is ranked 162,979th in the world and 6,792nd in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 92.32 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
