The 18 Cowboys of The Real Ram Ranch is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Grant MacDonald with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 2.045 billion Cowboys are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ram Ranch. The average income tax rate is 89.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Cowboy economy, worth 460 trillion showers a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 225,072 showers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Banning party poppers has been a real party pooper, no personal detail is too tiny for the suede-denim census police, the world still seems flat to some people in space, and many Cowboys twitch nervously at the sight of nuns. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Real Ram Ranch's national animal is the Home-Owning Man on the Sidewalk, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Ranchanianism.

The Real Ram Ranch is ranked 4,582nd in the world and 222nd in The North Pacific for Highest Average Incomes, with 225,072.34 Standard Monetary Units.
