Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

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 keen interest in outer space, rampant corporate plagiarism, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 18.72 billion Cowlandians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Policy, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cowtopolis. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 52.5%.

The powerhouse Cowlandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,644 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 141,243 francs, with the richest citizens earning 5.9 times as much as the poorest.

Human tissue is grown in vats as a delicacy as well as for transplants, many aides in Queen Tabitha II's office are known to be serial jaywalkers, 'To Regulate And Beyond' is the unofficial motto of the Cowlandian Space Agency, and RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept. Crime is totally unknown. Cowland5's national animal is the cow, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Cowland5 is ranked 152,288th in the world and 117th in Canada for Most Primitive, scoring -275.22 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
