The Big Bull of Woonsocket is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Big Bull with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed population of 22.565 billion Woonsocketians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Commerce, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Woon Cow City. The average income tax rate is 3%, but much higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Uranium Mining industry.

Hundreds of thousands of convicts work as slaves in Woonsocket's many privately-owned prisons, organ donation is compulsory, truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news, and penurious citizens die from easily remedied ailments because they aren't 'taking enough initiative'. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Woonsocket's national animal is the Bull, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Bovinity, and its currency is the Moolah.

Woonsocket is ranked 5th in 10000 Islands and 264th in the world for Most Godforsaken, with 458 Dawkins.
