The Constitutional Monarchy of New Cobastheia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by King Jacubeaus Cobastheian with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, parental licensing program, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.094 billion Cobastheians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cobast City. The average income tax rate is 97.1%.

The powerhouse Cobastheian economy, worth a remarkable 1,517 trillion Basthen Sheets a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 136,769 Basthen Sheets, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams, at least 1% of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs budget goes to King Jacubeaus Cobastheian's wardrobe, biotech companies are fined if their jumbled genetic sequences look too familiar, and prisoners can't do number twos without their "toilet buddy" present. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Cobastheia's national animal is the Grey Dragon Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Atheism.

New Cobastheia is ranked 3,211th in the world and 347th in The East Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 44 Valid Endorsements.
