The Golden Cow lords of Sovren is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Lord Haladavar Iarphine Glāthor with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, parental licensing program, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cynical population of 2.616 billion sovrenians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government prioritizes Defense, with Administration, Law & Order, and Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mythm Caelora. The average income tax rate is 57.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Sovrenian economy, worth 324 trillion Sovereign Cojochas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 123,873 Sovereign Cojochas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens are encouraged to report friends, family members or co-workers who seem depressed to the government for "counselling", the internet has been placed under government control, nuclear submarines have been deployed to protect the nation's banana supply, and asking 'a penny for your thoughts?' draws law enforcement response. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sovren's national animal is the Humped Cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Congregation of the Holy Cow.

Sovren is ranked 18,877th in the world and 5th in the Union of Wreath and Rose for Most Developed, scoring 84.9 on the Human Development Index.
