The Republic of Coutdown is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Anderson with an even hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.7 billion Cowdanians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 50.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Coutdownian economy, worth 227 trillion Koranis a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 133,959 Koranis, with the richest citizens earning 6.8 times as much as the poorest.

Tradesmen will knock 10% off their fees if customers pay cash, unemployed political consultants and advertisers spend every election night weeping for the good old days, census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, and farm turkeys are given high doses of antidepressants to take their minds off the holiday season. 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 2,512th in the world and 1st in It Keeps Happening for Most Secular, with 98.85 Atheism Rate.
