OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Commonwealth of South Cowland is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Ken with an even hand, and notable for its irreverence towards religion. Its hard-nosed, hard-working population of 7.366 billion 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, Defence, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cow City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 91%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Tourism industry, followed by Information Technology and Book Publishing.

An increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, the importance of winning Olympic gold medals is indoctrinated from an early age, all guns must be registered, and Cow City is a police state during international summits. 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 10th in Europe and 640th in the world for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring 17 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
