The Federal Republic of LittlestHobo is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Napoleon Lo Piccolo with an even hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, lack of airports, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 8.894 billion LittlestHoboans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Puppyville. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient LittlestHoboan economy, worth a remarkable 1,986 trillion ducats a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Basket Weaving. Average income is an amazing 223,303 ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

An endless multinational bureaucracy connects the Red Bloc, if foreigners can hit a spittoon from five paces they get a free holiday to LittlestHobo, victims of crime are viewed as less trustworthy than politicians, and the bourgeoisie are asked nicely to hand over the means of production. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. LittlestHobo's national animal is the Puppy, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

LittlestHobo is ranked 221,922nd in the world and 8,003rd in Osiris for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring -33.97 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
