The Bovinian State of CLovidia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Grandmaster Bee with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, anti-smoking policies, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.965 billion CLovidians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Belgian Blue City. The average income tax rate is 42.2%.

The frighteningly efficient CLovidian economy, worth 376 trillion human lives a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 126,887 human lives, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

Stockbrokers dream of getting rich by writing textbooks, fifty years of pension funds can disappear in half a second, political speeches that drill deep into bureaucratic fine detail could be said to be a little boring, and red rinses are frequently applied to grey hair. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. CLovidia's national animal is the 1337 CLovine, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is The Almighty Dollar Bill.

CLovidia is ranked 13,430th in the world and 547th in the Rejected Realms for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 8,056.3 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
