The Big Bull of Woonsocket is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Bull Schmidt with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 27.336 billion Woonsocketeers enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The tiny, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wooncow City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Woonsocketian economy, worth an astonishing 11,914 trillion Moolahs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 435,851 Moolahs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Stoned tourists don't tend to remember much about their holidays here, government reports are now used to teach toddlers to read, former arms manufacturing CEOs are now delivering food for minimum wage, and only a minority of the population can actually vote at elections. Crime is totally unknown. Woonsocket's national animal is the Bull, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Bovinity.

Woonsocket is ranked 164,334th in the world and 1,428th in 10000 Islands for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 27.24 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
