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 7.672 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 alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, the capital of The Haunted Woods has burned to the ground and caused riots throughout the country, bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms, and the police have been reduced to using duct tape instead of handcuffs following further cutbacks. 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 1st in Ixnay and 338th in the world for Best Weather, with 747 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
