The Desolation of The Haunted Woods is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by the Phantom Guide with a fair hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 8.191 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.

The space program has been scrapped in order to focus on more terrestrial pursuits, there is a dearth of space for new houses, national parks have long lines of different gender-specific 'Porta-Pottys', and citizens recently voted in favour of declaring bubblewrap an 'abomination of nature'. 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 Yanxi and 1,890th in the world for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 89 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
