The Big Bull of Woonsocket is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Bull Schmidt with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, pith helmet sales, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 35.228 billion Woonsocketeers have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wooncow City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Woonsocketian economy, worth an astonishing 15,825 trillion Moolahs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 449,224 Moolahs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Social media sites prompt users to send birthday greetings to unresponsive nonagenarians, invasive drug testing is now performed at elementary school sports days, politicians are losing their jobs in a plan to make the government 'leaner and fitter', and any citizen who cries is immediately assigned a psychiatrist. Crime is totally unknown. Woonsocket's national animal is the Bull, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Bovinity.

Woonsocket is ranked 117th in the world and 3rd in 10000 Islands for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 20,101.74 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
