The 18 Cowboys of The Real Ram Ranch is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Grant MacDonald with an iron fist, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, public floggings, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 3.701 billion Cowboys are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Industry, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while International Aid isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ram Ranch. The average income tax rate is 92.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cowboy economy, worth 887 trillion showers a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 239,822 showers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Military minds worry that 'the blue screen of death' on brand new operating systems may be a literal description, the government is funding experimental battery technology while the power grid continues to crumble, Dogman-branded weapons are all the rage in the militaristic comic-book community, and foreign leaders' Twitcher accounts are monitored for potential threats to national security. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Real Ram Ranch's national animal is the Cowpoke, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Ranchanianism.

The Real Ram Ranch is ranked 65,786th in the world and 2,222nd in The North Pacific for Most Armed, with 0.57 Weapons Per Person.
