The Empire of Cobrallstain is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by James with an iron fist, and remarkable for its enslaved workforce, compulsory military service, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.842 billion Cobrallstainians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Canadia. The average income tax rate is 86.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Cobrallstainian economy, worth 705 trillion Damascus Roses a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 183,716 Damascus Roses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

The nation has an international reputation for compassion, rumours have it that a secret police is responsible for the recent spate of missing persons, being James has been voted one of the top ten most dangerous jobs, and most believe it doesn't hurt to embrace free trade. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cobrallstain's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Cobrallstain is ranked 163,787th in the world and 8,755th in The North Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 5.62 Obesity Rate.
