Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

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 frequent executions, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 10.015 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 85.4%.

The large but underdeveloped cannon fodder economy, worth 550 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 54,968 corpses, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.

Tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, burglary is widely regarded as the national sport, same-sex marriages are increasingly common, and citizens can be frequently spotted going about their business stark naked. 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 18th in Greater Ixnay and 19,002nd in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring 13 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
