The Federative Kingdom of Cowbridge is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by King William with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, infamous sell-swords, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 2.056 billion Cowbridgeans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

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 71.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cowbridgean economy, worth 222 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 108,114 Cowbridgean Ducats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Dozens of additional foreign policy specialists have been sent to the country's WA Mission, Cowbridge has one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world, nothing gets the party jumping like King William specifying how high, and cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates. 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 14,188th in the world and 797th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 87.77 on the Human Development Index.
