The Grand Duchy of Bobesville-Sholstine is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its ban on automobiles, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 587 million Bobesville-Sholstieners are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bobesville-Sholstine. The average income tax rate is 70.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Bobesville-Sholstinean economy, worth 38.4 trillion Grand Ducats a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Retail and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 65,338 Grand Ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Refugees from other nations are flocking to Bobesville-Sholstine's border, international humanitarian organisations are applauding the government for ending the death penalty, enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity, and seasonal hay-fever sufferers are attending government drug counselling sessions to get free doughnuts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bobesville-Sholstine's national animal is the Sheep Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Bobesville-Sholstine is ranked 158,751st in the world and 306th in Refugia for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 53.34 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
