The Generically Named Nation of Bobs raider puppet is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Bob with an iron fist, and renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime, sprawling nuclear power plants, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 16.396 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 receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crasheropolis. The average income tax rate is 13.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Bobs raider puppetian economy, worth a remarkable 2,862 trillion raider cheeses a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 174,563 raider cheeses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

Warfare increasingly resembles a video game, the path to inner peace is paved with state-mandated punishment, the government maintains that belief brings greater security than money or a roof, and for 25 raider cheeses tourists can gawk at the site of national tragedy. 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 frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Raiderism.

Bobs raider puppet is ranked 57,053rd in the world and 1,578th in Lazarus for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 90.09 on the Hayek Index.
