The Commonwealth of South Cowland is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Ken with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 7.896 billion South Cowlandians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defence. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cow City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 93%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Tourism industry, followed by Information Technology and Book Publishing.

Discarded pennies litter the streets, long arduous trials are held for the most trivial of offences, anyone who so much as frowns is referred to a mental health unit, and senior citizens can usually be found doing heavy manual labour. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. South Cowland's national animal is the fox, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the Pound.

South Cowland is ranked 382nd in Europe and 109,307th in the world for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -29 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
