The Desolation of The Haunted Woods is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by the Phantom Guide with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 7.866 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 lowest age at which one can marry has been recently lowered to 12, Members of Parliament are often found living in cardboard boxes, organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, and prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators. 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 3rd in Yanxi and 19,805th in the world for Rudest Citizens, with 6.3 Insults Per Minute (net).
