|Leader||King Edvard Cobastheian II|
|Animal||Grey Dragon Owl|
The Constitutional Monarchy of New Cobastheia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by King Edvard Cobastheian II with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, keen interest in outer space, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 13.4 billion Cobastheians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The enormous, outspoken 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 97.4%.
The all-consuming Cobastheian economy, worth a remarkable 1,862 trillion Basthen Sheets a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 139,010 Basthen Sheets, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Citizens are remarkably well involved in the political process, lobotomised jaywalkers can barely ambulate let alone repeat their offences, a traveller who once stubbed a toe on an Air Brancaland flight has been offered asylum, and machine-peeled candied grapes come in individual packaging for the busy commuter. 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.
