The Empire of Cowboyland is a huge, safe nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 538 million Cowboylandians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, with Law & Order, Defense, and Industry also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cahokia. The average income tax rate is 45.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Cowboylandian economy, worth 37.8 trillion Peso Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 70,183 Peso Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Only clowns with PhDs from clown college can advise Leader on Cowboyland's coulrophobia epidemic, community-designed sword prostheses are becoming dangerously common, motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours, and street preachers sell salvation with a side order of shame on every corner. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cowboyland's national animal is the Lizard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Cowboyland is ranked 154,924th in the world and 4,962nd in the West Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -2.37 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
