The Swiss Cheese Confederacy of Cowland5 is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Queen Tabitha II with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, unlimited-speed roads, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 20.886 billion Cowlandians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cowtopolis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 60.8%.

The all-consuming Cowlandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,927 trillion francs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 140,166 francs, with the richest citizens earning 6.2 times as much as the poorest.

Restaurants are required to specify whether their toilet paper was made in Cowland5, the nation turns a blind eye to human rights abuses in its quest for athletic supremacy, debates on whether toilet seats should be left up or down are increasingly commonplace, and the nation grinds to a halt for afternoon tea. Crime is totally unknown. Cowland5's national animal is the cow, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Cowland5 is ranked 2,089th in the world and 2nd in Canada for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 16,363.13 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
