The Big Bull of Woonsocket is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Big Bull with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 22.912 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. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Uranium Mining industry.

The airship business has been driven out of the country by strict regulations and high fines, senior citizens can usually be found doing heavy manual labour, politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, and gambling is outlawed. 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 31st in 10000 Islands and 1,293rd in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 371 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
