The Commonwealth of South Cowland is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Ken with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 8.79 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 Defence, Education, 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 94%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Tourism industry, followed by Information Technology and Book Publishing.

Truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news, new laws have paved the way for female politicians, former school buses now regularly shuttle kids to the nearest shopping centers to work, and Fox is one of the most popular forenames in South Cowland. 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 11th in Europe and 656th in the world for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 15 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
