The Federative Kingdom of Cowbridge is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by King William with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 2.209 billion Cowbridgeans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sarbagne. The average income tax rate is 72.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Cowbridgean economy, worth 230 trillion Cowbridgean Ducats a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 104,226 Cowbridgean Ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Citizens cannot change their light bulbs without approval from an international committee, kids are arrested at gunpoint for playing with toy rifles, diplomats are always trying to convince other nations to adopt l33t speak, and one-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cowbridge's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Protestant Christianity.
