The Cargo Port of Cobleck Weleis is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by CEO Natalie Porter with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, unlimited-speed roads, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 2.469 billion Welexians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Industry, although Defense is also considered important, while Law & Order and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Liloy. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Cobleck Welexian economy, worth 630 trillion Shipping containers a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Soda Sales, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 255,299 Shipping containers, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,332,892 per year while the poor average 3,053, a ratio of 764 to 1.

Dessert dishes make up the Cobleck Welexian breakfast menu, terrified neighbors cower behind concertina wire and machine gun nests, sales of superhero insurance have skyrocketed after the government abandoned the police in favor of vigilantes, and schools offer a range of lessons in subjects as diverse as The Economics of Bullying for Lunch Money. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Cobleck Weleis's national animal is the leopard 🐆, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Cobleck Weleis is ranked 390th in the world and 11th in The North Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 764.05 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
