The Republic of Kobehia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Martin Kulibusiscuk with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 3.302 billion Kobehians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government is primarily concerned with Education, although Industry, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Prodei. The average income tax rate is 57.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Kobehian economy, worth 308 trillion kornas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 93,349 kornas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The entire entry for Kobehia in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the World reads 'mostly harmless', it's normal to start working life with crippling financial debt, some are born loving old plays and some have old plays thrust upon them, and the experimental sculpture "Overtures In Dried Eagle Dung" has been declared a national treasure. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kobehia's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Tajga.

Kobehia is ranked 163,987th in the world and 5,780th in Balder for Most Extreme, scoring 10.26 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
