Cobra Unity, officially known as the People's Republic of Cobra Unity, formerly known as Al-Alawi, is a small oil-rich country located between Iran and Iraq, sharing a border with both, as well bordered on the north by as Armenia and Azerbaijan, and on the northwest by Turkey.
Crown Prince Nassir Ali ibin Abassa was born in 1982. He attended Harvard University in the United States from 2000-2004, and took over control of the country when his father, Crown Prince Hassem Nassir Ibin Abassa died in 2006.
The official leader of the People's Republic of Cobra Unity is Cobra Commander, but thus far he has ruled in absentia, leaving management of the new country to Baroness DeCobray and Baron Ironblood. However, Baron Ironblood has been conspicuously absent from official pronouncements of late, and there are even rumors that he has split from Cobra.
Baroness announced the new name of the country was The People's Republic of Cobra Unity or the C.U. The CU has applied for UN membership, although the US refuses to officially acknowledge then Cobra government.
