The Empire of Cobrallstain is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by James with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, infamous sell-swords, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 2.036 billion Cobrallstainians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

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 75.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cobrallstainian economy, worth 351 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 172,873 Damascus Roses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The national anthem is a rather effective sleeping aid, religious turf wars have caused frustrated police to pray for divine intervention, the Cobrallstain Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, and Red Cross demand for body bags is rising while sutures go unused. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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 7,365th in the world and 361st in The North Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 128 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
