The Commonwealth of South Cowland is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Ken with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 8.236 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, 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 93%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Tourism industry, followed by Information Technology and Book Publishing.

Artists are pillars of society, the government has declared its commitment to multilateralism, drug distribution is tightly controlled by the government, and it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws. 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 48th in Europe and 23,940th in the world for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, scoring 132 on the Inverse Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
