The Republic of Kobanie is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Kobe with an even hand, and remarkable for its aversion to nipples, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.827 billion Kobanieanz are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kobe City. The average income tax rate is 76.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kobaniean economy, worth 606 trillion euros a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 158,578 euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Orthopaedics patients often have a bounce in their step, doctors who mutter "Oh my God" often lose their medical license, 10-year-olds who struggle with integrating by parts are considered slow learners, and sheepish teenagers are making eye contact with their parents for the first time in a decade during state-enforced 'no-phones hour'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kobanie's national animal is the Mockingjay, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Kobanie is ranked 132,960th in the world and 145th in Sonindia for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 146.2 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
