The Republic of Bowen Hill is a massive, safe nation, ruled by President Zog with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.695 billion Boweners 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 medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Flemington Hill. The average income tax rate is 44.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Bowen Hillian economy, worth 151 trillion Sovereigns a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 89,359 Sovereigns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Foreign policy is mostly just to smile and hope for the best, science centers and state of the art laboratories are ubiquitous, the government has begun breaking all large businesses into thousands of mom-and-pop general stores, and euthanasia is illegal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Bowen Hill's national animal is the Elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Agnostic Church of Bowen Hill.

Bowen Hill is ranked 45,176th in the world and 38th in Red Wolf Alliance for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 51.48 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
