Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Commonwealth of South Cowland is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Ken with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, anti-smoking policies, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 10.156 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 3.1%.

The frighteningly efficient South Cowlandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,956 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 291,130 Pounds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,014,409 per year while the poor average 60,833, a ratio of 16.7 to 1.

The government spends its days financing the delocalisation of its own economy, the government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments, the nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields, and tax assessment offices double as polling stations. 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 65th in Europe and 12,109th in the world for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 3 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
