The Federative Kingdom of Cowbridge is a massive, genial nation, ruled by King William with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, infamous sell-swords, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 2.073 billion Cowbridgeans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sarbagne. The average income tax rate is 70.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cowbridgean economy, worth 224 trillion Cowbridgean Ducats a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 108,236 Cowbridgean Ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cowbridge has one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world, nothing gets the party jumping like King William specifying how high, cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, and King William's peyote-induced "let's all just be friends" speech is trending world-wide. 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.

Cowbridge is ranked 221,210th in the world and 8,281st in The North Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -195.3 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
