Kowenian States

Population6.084 billion


The Divided Country of Kowenian States is a colossal, cultured nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The democratic, devout population of 6.084 billion Kowenians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 54.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Kowenian economy, worth 254 trillion Wongs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Pizza Delivery industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 41,912 Wongs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The tenet of free speech is held dear, the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, lavish state dinners in Kowenian States City are the state's leading budgetary expenditure, and the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kowenian States's national animal is the Kowenian, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Kowenian States is ranked 70,417th in the world and 29th in The Hole To Hide In for Most Primitive, scoring 25.5 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
