The Desolation of The Haunted Woods is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by the Phantom Guide with a fair hand, and renowned for its strong anti-business policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 7.794 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 'kind of scrawny' 500 meter hurdle is a popular event, houses and businesses are bulldozed to make way for ever-expanding cemeteries, conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, and people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight. 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 49th in Ixnay and 108,345th in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0 Stalins.
