Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Commonwealth of South Cowland is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Ken with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, parental licensing program, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 12.131 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, 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 4.9%.

The frighteningly efficient South Cowlandian economy, worth a remarkable 3,539 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 291,807 Pounds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 964,839 per year while the poor average 65,975, a ratio of 14.6 to 1.

Country folk are sent to obligatory boarding schools to learn how to be civilized, the government has little issue with allowing its citizens to languish in foreign jails, the new 'Things We Stole From Other Countries' exhibition at the National Museum of Antiquities is a hit, and small businesses are gobbled up almost daily by corporate giants. 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 1,714th in the world and 34th in Europe for Smartest Citizens, with 147.32 Quips Per Hour.
