The Federation of Bovidia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by the Gray Bull with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, anti-smoking policies, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 12.652 billion Bovidians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The tiny, socially-minded government is effectively ruled by the Department of Environment, with Education also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Welfare receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 4.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Bovidian economy, worth 61.6 trillion calories a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 4,864 calories, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Weather reports simply advise Bovidians to 'look outside', there's a lot of hot air coming from the Capitol Building, the national census includes an opt-in to join the government-run dating service, and environmentalists have found an unusual ally in soldiers of fortune. 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 688th in the world and 1st in A Modern World for Most Primitive, scoring 255.75 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
