The Generically Named Nation of Bobs raider puppet is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Bob with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, parental licensing program, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 15.978 billion Bobs raider puppetians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crasheropolis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Bobs raider puppetian economy, worth a remarkable 2,801 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. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 175,358 raider cheeses, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 888,750 per year while the poor average 19,193, a ratio of 46.3 to 1.

Girls who wear lipstick are berated for pandering to male gazes, among slaves 'bastard' is an honorific rather than an insult, children are often punished for the sins of the fathers, and citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bobs raider puppet's national animal is the fenda, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Raiderism.

Bobs raider puppet is ranked 2,346th in the world and 134th in Lazarus for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 8,170.03 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
