OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Commonwealth of South Cowland is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Ken with an even hand, and renowned for its enslaved workforce, sprawling nuclear power plants, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 9.049 billion South Cowlandians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, 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 2.5%.

The frighteningly efficient South Cowlandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,626 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 290,204 Pounds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 840,462 per year while the poor average 79,409, a ratio of 10.6 to 1.

The nanny industry has had a boom after maternity leave was recently banned, the government strictly regulates whale harvest quotas, traffic jams are a common sight due to construction work from a massive overhaul of the nation's freeways, and the government keeps introducing new foreign species to combat the previous ones it has introduced. 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 331st in Europe and 113,355th in the world for Most Devout, scoring -166 on the Paradise-Perdition Likelihood Rating.
