Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Swiss Cheese Confederacy of Cowland5 is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Queen Tabitha II with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 17.446 billion Cowlandians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Policy, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cowtopolis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 50.8%.

The powerhouse Cowlandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,398 trillion francs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Gambling, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 137,499 francs, with the richest citizens earning 5.8 times as much as the poorest.

Bored politicians often entertain themselves with games of Simon during important votes, travel bureaus double as recruiting centers for national intelligence agencies, the military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, and cars speed down national highways while drivers sleep at the wheel. Crime is totally unknown. Cowland5's national animal is the cow, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Cowland5 is ranked 30,260th in the world and 63rd in Canada for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 94.86 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
