The Commonwealth of South Cowland is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Ken with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 8.447 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 92%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Tourism industry, followed by Information Technology and Book Publishing.

Fresh food is a thing of the past due to onerous testing standards, the judicial branch is strongly influenced by major corporations, it is illegal to liberate slaves, and government officials frequently cut taxes as a distraction from antics with their secretaries. 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 62nd in Europe and 10,084th in the world for Largest Populations, with 8,447 Capita (millions).
