The Kayaking Hispters of Obets is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Megan Ryles with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 1.69 billion e-Obet hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zalinsky. The average income tax rate is 76.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient e-Obeat economy, worth 187 trillion Gorams a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 111,100 Gorams, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Feeling like a winner comes at a price, major cities run on potato batteries, police officers often head to work wearing onesies and fluffy pink bunny-slippers, and prisoners can't do number twos without their "toilet buddy" present. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Obets's national animal is the Kqqa, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Obets is ranked 13,363rd in the world and 55th in The Free Nations Region for Most Beautiful Environments, with 1,303.09 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
