Lown Cobiduckillyland

Population460 million


The Democratic Republic of Lown Cobiduckillyland is a huge, genial nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 460 million Lown Cobiduckillylandians 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 enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Administration, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. The average income tax rate is 70.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Lown Cobiduckillylandian economy, worth 16.1 trillion marks a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery, Information Technology, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 34,958 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nobody looks each other in the eye at neighborhood block parties any more, census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, citizens can only enjoy the splendor of the natural world in designated 'Majesty Appreciation' zones, and a degree in Leader Science with a Minor in Awesomeology starts many political careers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lown Cobiduckillyland's national animal is the cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Lown Cobiduckillyland is ranked 63,640th in the world and 2,772nd in the South Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 23.93 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
