The Federation of Bovidia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by the Gray Bull with an even hand, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, fear of technology, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 15.442 billion Bovidians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small, socially-minded government is effectively ruled by the Department of Environment, although Education is also considered important, while Law & Order and Welfare receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 4.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Bovidian economy, worth 80.1 trillion calories a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 5,184 calories, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Chekhov's guns are killing the entertainment budget, the government baselessly accuses foreign dignitaries of being assassins, the crackdown on private property seems as endless as the government issued food stamp lines, and vacationers and business travelers are often warned that they may lose the right to vote if they spend too much time overseas. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Bovidia's national animal is the abolished long ago, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is a major religion.

Bovidia is ranked 1,099th in the world and 1st in A Modern World for Nudest, with 1,211 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
