The Most Serene Republic of Bowfell is a colossal, safe nation, remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, frequent executions, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 5.574 billion Bowfellians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 66.2%.

The all-consuming Bowfellian economy, worth 513 trillion sheep a year, is led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Pizza Delivery. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 92,061 sheep, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

It is illegal to have the wrong clock time showing on your microwave oven, the nation's once beautiful countryside has turned brown as farmers spray potent pesticides, the nation honors the inventor of the three-wheeled steam-powered Bowfellian weed picker, and flipping a coin to make a decision leads to a referral to Gambling Addiction Services. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bowfell's national animal is the sheep, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Bowfell is ranked 40,465th in the world and 2,188th in Osiris for Largest Governments, scoring 19.8 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
