The Scouser Republic of Kobomania is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Jürgen Klopp with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, national health service, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.818 billion Scousers are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Anfield. The average income tax rate is 99.2%.

The strong Kobomanian economy, worth 699 trillion Badges a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Information Technology industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 120,213 Badges, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, many friends and relatives of Jürgen Klopp have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations, athletic teenagers are among the wealthiest members of society, and printing out government documents requires the approval of at least three admins. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kobomania's national animal is the Butterfly, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Kobomania is ranked 13,908th in the world and 160th in 10000 Islands for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 6,668.42 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
