The Desolation of The Haunted Woods is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by the Phantom Guide with a fair hand, and notable for its ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 8.515 billion poor unfortunate souls are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

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 new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction, public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers, city sidewalks are crowded with overweight people, and the public health bureaucracy is wrapped in miles of red tape. 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 7th in Yanxi and 120,073rd in the world for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -23 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
