The Kingdom of Cowbridge is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by King William with a fair hand, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 2.454 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sarbagne. The average income tax rate is 71.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cowbridgean economy, worth 264 trillion Cowbridgean Ducats a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 107,859 Cowbridgean Ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Whenever pilots have to bail out the government bails out their company, King William has been known to make speeches in fishing waders, the new Really Big Telescope has been praised for presenting pictures of bright dots in unprecedented detail, and it can be a real jungle in a modern courtroom. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cowbridge's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Protestant Christianity.

Cowbridge is ranked 11,534th in the world and 678th in The North Pacific for Highest Food Quality, scoring 145.86 on the Meeshlin-Starr Index.
