The Commonwealth of South Cowland is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Ken with an even hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 11.304 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 3.2%.
The frighteningly efficient South Cowlandian economy, worth a remarkable 3,317 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 293,491 Pounds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,006,899 per year while the poor average 62,786, a ratio of 16.0 to 1.
The police crack down on tax evaders without mercy, the nation is known as the cheapskates of Europe, government officials across South Cowland are being "encouraged" to adopt foxes to set an example for the populace, and scenic beaches are now protected by massive concrete walls. 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.
