Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Desolation of The Haunted Woods is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by the Phantom Guide with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, daily referendums, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 9.663 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is solely concerned with Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the Graveyard. The average income tax rate is 86.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant cannon fodder economy, worth 69.7 trillion corpses a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, extremely specialized black market in Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 7,210 corpses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Leather-clad individuals can be seen walking their slaves in public parks, polling place volunteers are suddenly opening a huge number of offshore bank accounts, the wearing and manufacture of fur apparel is banned, and workers have seized control of the economy. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete 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, and its national religion is the Afterlife.

The Haunted Woods is ranked 21st in Greater Ixnay and 24,350th in the world for Largest Public Sector, scoring 23 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
