The Commonwealth of South Cowland is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by Ken with an even hand, and notable for its parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 2.514 billion, 2.511 billion of whom are zombies, 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, Defence, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cow City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 92%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Tourism industry, followed by Information Technology and Book Publishing.

Most of the military's funding goes into researching space-age weaponry, politicians accepting drinks in bars are executed for taking bribes, the government encourages conflict abroad to increase arms sales, and Red Cross demand for body bags is rising while sutures go unused. 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 12th in Europe and 1,122nd in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 25 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.

South Cowland is currently considering its options.
