The Commonwealth of South Cowland is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Ken with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 9.407 billion South Cowlandians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.
The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cow City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.7%.
The frighteningly efficient South Cowlandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,707 trillion Pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an amazing 287,852 Pounds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 867,448 per year while the poor average 74,469, a ratio of 11.6 to 1.
People caught mistreating South Cowland's flag generally wind up in a great deal of pain, CEOs can't hear the term 'Fire Sale' without bursting into tears, urban high-volume mailers now receive their mail via chauffeur-driven limousines, and travellers are often forcibly evicted by torch-bearing mobs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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.
