The Generically Named Nation of Bobs raider puppet is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Bob with an iron fist, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, sprawling nuclear power plants, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 14.233 billion Bobs raider puppetians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crasheropolis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 39.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Bobs raider puppetian economy, worth a remarkable 2,663 trillion raider cheeses a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 187,139 raider cheeses, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 575,175 per year while the poor average 47,069, a ratio of 12.2 to 1.

Light entertainment isn't dead, the roar of the Niagara 3000 mega-loo can be heard several blocks away, reports of arson have doubled since the introduction of a privatised fire protection service, and parents who refuse to vaccinate their children are given a short jail sentence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bobs raider puppet's national animal is the fenda, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Raiderism.

Bobs raider puppet is ranked 4,781st in the world and 251st in Lazarus for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 7,141.35 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
