The Bovinian State of CLovidia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Grandmaster Bee with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.04 billion CLovidians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Belgian Blue City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 22.7%.

The frighteningly efficient CLovidian economy, worth 123 trillion human lives a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 118,648 human lives, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 885,893 per year while the poor average 4,643, a ratio of 190 to 1.

Politicians are often seen with soldiers pointing guns at their heads, immigrants are asked to leave their cultural traditions and pride at the border, indigenous tribal elders can be recognised by their designer watches and expensive suits, and it is illegal to carry an umbrella when the official weather forecast predicts a sunny day. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. CLovidia's national animal is the 1337 CLovine, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

CLovidia is ranked 171,617th in the world and 4,593rd in the Rejected Realms for Most Average, scoring 24.62 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
