Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Commonwealth of South Cowland is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Ken with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, anti-smoking policies, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 9.757 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, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cow City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.4%.

The frighteningly efficient South Cowlandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,815 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 288,547 Pounds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 974,942 per year while the poor average 63,164, a ratio of 15.4 to 1.

Army uniforms are replaced en masse to accommodate adult soldiers, political scientists despair as the national mascot election eclipses all others in voter enthusiasm, tourists outnumber citizens two to one, and the military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms. 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 21st in Europe and 3,640th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 8 on the Hayek Index.
