The Empire of Cobrallstain is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by James with an iron fist, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, smutty television, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 2.831 billion Cobrallstainians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Canadia. The average income tax rate is 77.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cobrallstainian economy, worth 483 trillion Damascus Roses a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 170,675 Damascus Roses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's leader is normally just referred to as "snuggle-wuggle-huggy-bear", more than one company makes the board game Monopoly, the Canadia XV Regiment (aka "The Goat Starers") have yet to win a battle, and EULAs remind customers that "Private Mode" is a browser setting rather than a promise. 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 116,547th in the world and 5,599th in The North Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 39.18 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
