The Desolation of The Haunted Woods is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by the Phantom Guide with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 8.18 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.

Midnight pizza breaks are common among the work-from-home population, leather-clad individuals can be seen walking their slaves in public parks, the space program has been scrapped in order to focus on more terrestrial pursuits, and there is a dearth of space for new houses. 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 Yanxi and 516th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 14 on the Hayek Index.
