The Gold Bundesrepublik of Cobleck Weleis is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by General John Cobleck with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, infamous sell-swords, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.167 billion Welexians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Industry, with Defense also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Liloy. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Cobleck Welexian economy, worth 230 trillion Welexian Four Leaf Clover 🍀s a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Information Technology, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 197,154 Welexian Four Leaf Clover 🍀s, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,608,494 per year while the poor average 5,231, a ratio of 307 to 1.

The government raises tariffs on a weekly basis, the masses are surrendering their civil liberties without complaint for the sake of shopping convenience, boot polish is the favourite lip gloss of entry-level corporate workers, and there's a lot of hot air coming from the Capitol Building. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Cobleck Weleis's national animal is the leopard 🐆, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Cobleck Weleis is ranked 37,841st in the world and 1,645th in the South Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 27.03 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
