Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Commonwealth of South Cowland is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Ken with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 10.342 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, pro-business 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 2.9%.

The frighteningly efficient South Cowlandian economy, worth a remarkable 3,010 trillion Pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 291,058 Pounds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,014,157 per year while the poor average 60,818, a ratio of 16.7 to 1.

Citizens must pay to enjoy South Cowland's pristine beaches, mandatory neutering has made purebred dogs a thing of the past, travel bureaus double as recruiting centers for national intelligence agencies, and many politicians are serving jail time for minor drug offenses. 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 441st in Europe and 115,722nd in the world for Happiest Citizens, scoring 9 on the Relative Cheerfulness Rating.
