The Arab Socialist Jamahiriya of Cobra Sahara is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Muammar Al-Ghaddafi with an iron fist, and renowned for its daily referendums, anti-smoking policies, and infamous sell-swords. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 5.089 billion Libyans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tripoli. The average income tax rate is 90.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Libya economy, worth 488 trillion Dinars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 95,939 Dinars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Prosecutors routinely call transplant doctors as 'expert witnesses' in burglary cases, police officers often head to work wearing onesies and fluffy pink bunny-slippers, businesses are forced to bring all work back within the nation's borders, and lawyers turn down litigation cases and corporate work in order to focus on lucrative public defence work. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cobra Sahara's national animal is the Hawk of Quraish, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Islam.

Cobra Sahara is ranked 216,579th in the world and 128th in Africa for Most Politically Free, scoring 29.14 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
