The Desolation of The Haunted Woods is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by the Phantom Guide with a fair hand, and renowned for its absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 7.629 billion poor unfortunate souls hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, liberal individuals is effectively ruled by the Department of the Environment, with areas such as Law & Order and Defence receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the Graveyard. Income tax is unheard of. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Eight year-olds can be seen lighting up in public areas, the nation leads Ixnay in per capita stalking, college students make ends meet by selling their kidneys, and The Haunted Woods is notorious for its citizens' infidelity. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. The Haunted Woods's national animal is the Will O' the Wisp, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is the Afterlife, and its currency is the corpse.

The Haunted Woods is ranked 1st in Ixnay and 477th in the world for Longest Average Lifespans, scoring 63 on the Enoch Index.
