Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Desolation of The Haunted Woods is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by the Phantom Guide with a fair hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, lack of airports, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 12.33 billion Blind Followers hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government, or what there is of one, 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 3.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Superstitious economy, worth 12.8 trillion corpses a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Information Technology industry. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is 1,036 corpses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

A ban on unsolicited cold calling in all forms is in effect, the streets are ravaged by murder and violence to prove political points, high school career advisors advise belligerent loners to consider vigilantism, and stoned tourists don't tend to remember much about their holidays here. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, probably because of the absence of a police force. 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 54,183rd in the world and 29th in Forest for Most Pro-Market, scoring 52.11 on the Rand Index.
