Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Commonwealth of South Cowland is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Ken with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 13.34 billion South Cowlandians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cow City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.4%.

The frighteningly efficient South Cowlandian economy, worth a remarkable 3,900 trillion Pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an amazing 292,358 Pounds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 966,659 per year while the poor average 66,099, a ratio of 14.6 to 1.

The new 'Things We Stole From Other Countries' exhibition at the National Museum of Antiquities is a hit, small businesses are gobbled up almost daily by corporate giants, commuters often break into synchronised para-para dancing for no reason at all, and NationStates staff are easily recognizable by their gold-plated mansions. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. South Cowland's national animal is the fox, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

South Cowland is ranked 1,897th in the world and 17th in Europe for Most Stationary, with 2,150.66529024 Days.
