The Federation of Cobrakia is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its public floggings, frequent executions, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 642 million Cobrakians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cobrani. The average income tax rate is 71.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cobrakian economy, worth 53.0 trillion Cobraks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 82,515 Cobraks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Lifeguards are more concerned with watching for sharks than struggling swimmers, troop transports blacken the sky as the military commences Operation Desert Ocean, nation-building is the new national pastime, and the current TV ratings hit is "Keeping Up With The Cobrakians". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cobrakia's national animal is the Cobra or Snake, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Cobrakia is ranked 73,454th in the world and 4,704th in The North Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 50.5 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
