The Swiss Cheese Confederacy of Cowland5 is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Queen Tabitha II with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 17.635 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 51.5%.
The powerhouse Cowlandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,427 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 137,626 francs, with the richest citizens earning 5.8 times as much as the poorest.
The military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, cars speed down national highways while drivers sleep at the wheel, Queen Tabitha II panders to nontraditional families, and torture is illegal. Crime is totally unknown. Cowland5's national animal is the cow, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
