The Queen's State of Cobb-Michelle is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by the Governor with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, avowedly heterosexual populace, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-working population of 36.665 billion Cobb-Michelleans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Industry, although Law & Order, Education, and Welfare are also considered important, while Social Policy is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital Heights. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 33.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Cobb-Michellean economy, worth a remarkable 2,517 trillion betales a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Average income is 68,668 betales, with the richest citizens earning 7.9 times as much as the poorest.

Thousands of cute furry kittens are trampling everything in their path (Cobb-Michelle has found 2 easter eggs), school uniforms are compulsory, fresh food is a thing of the past due to onerous testing standards, and the military patrols the streets in search of possible secessionists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cobb-Michelle's national animal is the deer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Cobb-Michelle is ranked 66,946th in the world and 13th in Old Spirit for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 2,660.05 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
