The Desolation of The Haunted Woods is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by the Phantom Guide with a fair hand, and remarkable for its absence of drug laws. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 7.089 billion 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.

Young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables, a new generation of aquariumless hotels are being built under government supervision, all recreational drugs are legal, and public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers. 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 32nd in Ixnay and 122,569th in the world for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -21 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
