The People's Reich of Kowley is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Decimus Cowley with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, complete lack of prisons, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, devout population of 7.102 billion Kowleyians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nyklas. The average income tax rate is 37.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Kowleyian economy, worth a remarkable 1,655 trillion Nyxes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 233,115 Nyxes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sales of superhero insurance have skyrocketed after the government abandoned the police in favor of vigilantes, ports have ground to a halt as no boat can reach them without trespassing, amusement park rides frequently collapse due to lack of maintenance, and evasive politicians don't fail to strongly commit to not committing to a course of non-inaction. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Kowley's national animal is the Grey Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Mormonism.

Kowley is ranked 11,052nd in the world and 30th in Commonwealth of Liberty for Longest Average Lifespans, with 91.1 Years.
