The Royal Commonwealth of Cowbridge is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its daily referendums, rampant corporate plagiarism, and infamous sell-swords. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 622 million 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 medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sarbagne. The average income tax rate is 54.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cowbridgean economy, worth 67.9 trillion Cowbridgean Ducats a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 109,140 Cowbridgean Ducats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Paper and ink publications are subsidised by the government to keep them in the black, citizens can only enjoy the splendor of the natural world in designated 'Majesty Appreciation' zones, beating enemies to death with a baseball bat is legal if done within nine innings, and motorcycle riders are required to wear so much gear they've been nicknamed "Stay Pufts". 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.

Cowbridge is ranked 160,641st in the world and 6,880th in The North Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 8.81 Obesity Rate.
