The Commonwealth of South Cowland is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Ken with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, enslaved workforce, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 9.246 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 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 2,657 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 287,393 Pounds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 843,272 per year while the poor average 77,210, a ratio of 10.9 to 1.
The government pours millions of Pounds into rehabilitation programs annually, the people are furious with the government for allowing citizens to be executed for petty crimes in foreign countries, cheese has become the new icon of political dissent, and schoolchildren have twice-weekly sex education classes. 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.
