The Empire of Kowley is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Nikolaus Winter with a fair hand, and remarkable for its triple-decker prams, zero percent divorce rate, and avant-garde cinema. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 2.676 billion Kowleyians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nyklas City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Kowleyian economy, worth 481 trillion Nyxes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 179,765 Nyxes, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 696,504 per year while the poor average 31,799, a ratio of 21.9 to 1.

The government advises foreign diplomats to speak softly and carry a big bag of cash, military pilots spend more time scraping feathers off their engines than flying their aircraft, people often get liposuction to reduce their air fares, and citizens are exhausted from weekly general elections. 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 Protestantism.

Kowley is ranked 2,993rd in the world and 132nd in The North Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 16,406.68 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
