The Foamy Frontiersmen of The Cappuccino Cowboy is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by mob of concerned citizens with an iron fist, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 14.172 billion Cappuccino Cowboys are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Booty Hill. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Cappuccino Cowboyian economy, worth a remarkable 3,522 trillion coffee beans a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Information Technology, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 248,544 coffee beans, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,316,583 per year while the poor average 2,380, a ratio of 973 to 1.

Billions are being spent on a new island airport, the nation is famous for having one of the world's largest big hoss hunting institutions, homeless people can be found sleeping on streets in front of unoccupied second homes, and directors of low-budget sci-fi films are flocking to use Booty Hill as a backdrop. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The Cappuccino Cowboy's national animal is the big hoss, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is a hot foamy caffeinated beverage.

The Cappuccino Cowboy is ranked 18,485th in the world and 14th in Texas for Highest Drug Use, scoring 112.8 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
