Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Commonwealth of South Cowland is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Ken with an even hand, and notable for its enslaved workforce, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 9.561 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 3.3%.

The frighteningly efficient South Cowlandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,754 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 288,087 Pounds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 973,387 per year while the poor average 63,063, a ratio of 15.4 to 1.

Chalkboards are replaced with billboards in the classroom, billions are being spent on a new island airport, citizens are encouraged to report friends, family members or co-workers who seem depressed to the government for "counselling", and police pull people off the street for even mentioning the word plane. 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 32nd in Europe and 6,423rd in the world for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 16 Whatever.
