The Federation of Kobolis is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic population of 7.543 billion Kobolians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 67.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Kobolisian economy, worth 232 trillion Cubits a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 30,836 Cubits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The tenet of free speech is held dear, Members of Parliament are often found living in cardboard boxes, droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, and citizens are expected to be proficient in at least five languages. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kobolis's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Kobolis is ranked 133,692nd in the world and 11th in Astyria for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 52.14 Workforce Participation Rate.
