Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Swiss Cheese Confederacy of Cowland5 is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King William IV with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, rampant corporate plagiarism, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 16.207 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 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 45.5%.

The powerhouse Cowlandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,194 trillion francs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Gambling, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 135,423 francs, with the richest citizens earning 6.0 times as much as the poorest.

Cowland5 is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, religion is strictly forbidden within school grounds, prison visits increase substantially during election years, and King William IV's mistress is the belle at many state balls. Crime is totally unknown. Cowland5's national animal is the cow, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Cowland5 is ranked 145th in Canada and 142,417th in the world for Largest Public Transport Department, scoring -17 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
