Regional Influence: Vassal
The Commonwealth of South Cowland is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Ken with an even hand, and remarkable for its irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 8.073 billion South Cowlandians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.
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 92%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Tourism industry, followed by Information Technology and Book Publishing.
Euthanasia is illegal, airport security is provided by private companies, graffiti artists spend lengthy periods of time in jail, and birth rates have hit an all-time low. 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.
