The Free Land of Moncow is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Cow with an iron fist, and remarkable for its closed borders, public floggings, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.151 billion Moncowians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cow. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 18.0%.

The powerhouse Moncowian economy, worth 123 trillion cows a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 107,254 cows, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 378,147 per year while the poor average 22,011, a ratio of 17.2 to 1.

Human tissue is grown in vats as a delicacy as well as for transplants, education for the poor is learning to ask "do you want fries with that?", search and rescue forces now accept cheques and all major credit cards, and songs in 4/4 time are simply too common for the musical cognoscenti. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Moncow's national animal is the cow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Moncow is ranked 221,278th in the world and 8,237th in Osiris for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -13.78 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
