The Desolation of The Haunted Woods is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by the Phantom Guide with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 8 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.

Libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, eight year-olds can be seen lighting up in public areas, tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, and wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms. 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 7th in Yanxi and 114,423rd in the world for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring -24 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
