Cobrastan led by Jorji Costava is a custom civilization in the works by Mathetes tou Megalo Alexandrou, based upon the Papers, Please series.
Dawn of Man
Blessed be your glorious 420 rule, Jorji Costava! You are the ruler of great Cobrastan! You are among the most iconic characters of Paper, Please. You're so great that you've even created what was once the imaginary fiefdom of Cobrastan, which now has become a reality. You have made a good friend of the inspector, who have first grown tired of you but grew fond of you, and you've returned the favor by offering to help him escape to Obristan.
Now, great 420 leader, lead Cobrastan to greatness! While your trade may seem as less noble, your heart is anything but noble. Forge a great nation occupied by content, loyal citizens who know you well, and spread a comedic joy to the world. Can you bring great change to this world? Can you build a civilization that will stand the test of time?
Cobrastan is primarily a mercantile civilization, having bonuses to actively trading with neighbors. Cobrastan is best played diplomatically, as it gains happiness from Declaration of Friendships while lacking in military bonuses.
The Smuggler also plays a part in Cobrastan's mercantile strengths: Smuggler can tour a rival's city, providing a small amount of tourism, while also causing the city to be "infiltrated," causing the city to produce more gold through trade routes. While the recipient civilization also receives more gold as well, the bonus is not only higher towards the sender, but even more so as the sender is the one that receives resource bonuses. As such, it is wise to dispatch Smugglers into border cities so that Cobrastan can profit off the trade. Keep in mind that other civilizations establishing trade routes with the city will also benefit from the bonus.
Use the extra gold to play diplomatically: Give gifts of gold to improve your relationship with other civilization, bribe them into attacking each other, and buy critical city-states that will greatly aid in the strategy chosen. Cobrastan is best suited towards a Diplomatic Victory, but the extra gold can be used to pursue other victories as well.
