The Ate carole's husband of Hobbesistan is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Carole Baskins with an even hand, and renowned for its ritual sacrifices, zero percent divorce rate, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 15.27 billion mobsters 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt morass — prioritizes Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Big Cat Rescue. The average income tax rate is 91.6%.

The frighteningly efficient in the Mob economy, worth a remarkable 1,518 trillion mob favors a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Soda Sales. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 99,466 mob favors, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Corporate lawyers are joyfully combing through the new tax code for any new loopholes for their clients, self-driving cars are unpopular due to suspicion that they murder their passengers, conspiracy theorists allege Big Cat Rescue's new subway map resembles Satanic symbols, and bands of adventurers rove the countryside searching for monsters. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hobbesistan's national animal is the Williams, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Hobbesistan is ranked 107,339th in the world and 4,043rd in The East Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 45.75 on the Rand Index.
