Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Commonwealth of South Cowland is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Ken with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 9.977 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 2.7%.

The frighteningly efficient South Cowlandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,912 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 291,920 Pounds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,017,161 per year while the poor average 60,998, a ratio of 16.7 to 1.

Bizarre-looking creatures called 'foxdogs' dominate wildlife preserves, any citizen who cries is immediately assigned a psychiatrist, cremation is compulsory for the deceased, and agriculture is heavily subsidized by the government. 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.

South Cowland is ranked 474th in Europe and 125,333rd in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring -8 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
