Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Commonwealth of South Cowland is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Ken with an even hand, and remarkable for its strictly enforced bedtime, sprawling nuclear power plants, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 11.927 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, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cow City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.6%.

The frighteningly efficient South Cowlandian economy, worth a remarkable 3,485 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 292,242 Pounds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 999,199 per year while the poor average 62,842, a ratio of 15.9 to 1.

School children are forced to sing the national anthem every morning, Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, invasive drug testing is now performed at elementary school sports days, and foxes are becoming popular in pet stores nationwide. 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.

South Cowland is ranked 31,892nd in the world and 289th in Europe for Longest Average Lifespans, with 69.68 Years.
