The 18 Cowboys of The Real Ram Ranch is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Grant MacDonald with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, infamous sell-swords, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.431 billion Cowboys are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Education, and Law & Order are also considered important, while International Aid is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ram Ranch. The average income tax rate is 79.8%.
The frighteningly efficient a Cowboy economy, worth 281 trillion showers a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 196,665 showers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.
Citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', theories abound over why conspiracy theorists are being arrested, private law firms are unheard of, and tabloids coo over Grant MacDonald's expected child. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Real Ram Ranch's national animal is the Ram, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Ranchanianism.
