The Oligarchy of Kobasan is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Sinbad the Magnificent with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, anti-smoking policies, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 3.283 billion Kobasanians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kobasonia. The average income tax rate is 57.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kobasanian economy, worth 610 trillion Golden Fish a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 185,886 Golden Fish, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

An aboriginal talking stick is used for leaders' debates at election time, commemoration of the Great Krillin War costs almost as much as the war itself, bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms, and citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kobasan's national animal is the Kiwi, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Kobasan is ranked 15,055th in the world and 5th in Krillin for Most Influential, scoring 2,011 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
