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 notable for its frequent executions, lack of airports, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 8.925 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 86.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant cannon fodder economy, worth 66.0 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 7,393 corpses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Haunted Woods has one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world, government officials have to mortgage their homes to make ends meet, dog breeding has been banned in accordance with recent animal experimentation laws, and bungee jumpers frequently go splat. 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 1st in Yanxi and 75th in the world for Most Primitive, scoring 291 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
