Location: The North Pacific

Regional Influence: Squire


The Protectorate of Cobolica is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Fingle Dan with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, digital currency, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 1.513 billion Cobolicans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Citadel. The average income tax rate is 92.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cobolican economy, worth 281 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 186,126 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sullen teenagers in bright orange 'community payback' onesies can be seen picking litter at the roadside, foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle, the government's new "quiet competence" initiative has supporters and detractors alike reeling in confusion, and toy versions of heroin paraphernalia let kids pretend to be their favourite TV characters. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cobolica's national animal is the beaver, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Cobolica is ranked 244,727th in the world and 10,670th in The North Pacific for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -16 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
