The Empire of Kowley is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Jeremiah Giles with an even hand, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, daily referendums, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 3.309 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 prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nyklas. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 17.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Kowleyian economy, worth 591 trillion Nyxes a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 178,804 Nyxes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 653,662 per year while the poor average 34,693, a ratio of 18.8 to 1.

The newest shade developed by Kowley's dye industry has been dubbed 'Agent Orange', war criminals are given full state funerals, it's been a banner year for local vexillology, and hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 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 1,445th in the world and 1st in Phoenix Coalition for Most Devout, with 7,695.09 Prayers Per Hour.
