The Commonwealth of Cowbridge is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by King William IV with a fair hand, and notable for its vat-grown people, infamous sell-swords, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.222 billion Cowbridgeans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sarbagne-Cowbridge. The average income tax rate is 85.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cowbridgean economy, worth 561 trillion Cowbridgean Ducats a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 133,035 Cowbridgean Ducats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

The installation of street lights across remote goat tracks has left citizens bemused, facial disfigurement is a leading cause of supervillainy, choking on Cowbridgean Ducats is a leading cause of death for wild animals, and mining safety laws are often more expensive than what's being mined. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cowbridge's national animal is the cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Violetism.

Cowbridge is ranked 600th in the world and 385th in The North Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 237 valid endorsements.
