The Republic of Coutdown is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Miguel with an even hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, sprawling nuclear power plants, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 2.029 billion Cowdanians 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.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bertadweevil. The average income tax rate is 62.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Coutdownian economy, worth 281 trillion Koranis a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 138,726 Koranis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.

The latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, the fines for getting caught with the wrong recipe book can force Cowdanians into bankruptcy, whenever pilots have to bail out the government bails out their company, and President Miguel's Twitcher account is typically used to share French Pig memes rather than government policy. Crime is totally unknown. Coutdown's national animal is the French Pig, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is State Atheism.

Coutdown is ranked 14,757th in the world and 1st in It Keeps Happening for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 3,721.85 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
