Location: The North Pacific

Regional Influence: Shoeshiner


The Bland Republic of Coutdown is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by 24th President Jared McLawerence with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, sprawling nuclear power plants, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 9.078 billion Cowdanians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Varmint. The average income tax rate is 75.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Coutdownian economy, worth a remarkable 1,320 trillion koranis a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 145,439 koranis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The most popular WhoTube videos are ones featuring parodies of iconic songs, stuttering trypanophobes are doomed never to marry, citizens are exhausted from weekly general elections, and most households' childcare costs are higher than their mortgage payments. Crime is totally unknown. Coutdown's national animal is the French Pig, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Mixed.

Coutdown is ranked 113,196th in the world and 4,868th in The North Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 1,144.66 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
