The Commonwealth of South Cowland is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Ken with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 8.664 billion South Cowlandians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

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, Defence, 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 93%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Tourism industry, followed by Information Technology and Book Publishing.

Children as young as six shock their parents by coming out of the closet, annulments are on the rise as couples discover their ancestors were born in the same hospitals, organ donation is compulsory, and school uniforms are compulsory. 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 28th in Europe and 1,393rd in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 362 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
