The Holy Empire of Koboldonesia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, anti-smoking policies, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 14.3 billion Koboldonesians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Coalbreeze. The average income tax rate is 99.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Koboldonesian economy, worth a remarkable 2,710 trillion shiny rocks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 189,521 shiny rocks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Body doubles and armed bodyguards escort witnesses to and from courtrooms, builders across Koboldonesia are blocked up with orders for new public loos, elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, and political satirists and late night comedians weep as the government begins cleaning up its act. Crime is totally unknown. Koboldonesia's national animal is the kobold, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Koboldonesia is ranked 1,462nd in the world and 49th in the South Pacific for Nicest Citizens, with 71.4 average smiles per day.
