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 public floggings, complete lack of prisons, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 10.978 billion poor unfortunate souls live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the Graveyard. Income tax is unheard of.

The sizeable but stagnant cannon fodder economy, worth 75.3 trillion corpses a year, is driven entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 6,858 corpses, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 26,832 per year while the poor average 1,194, a ratio of 22.5 to 1.

Disaster victims are viewed with disdain, all transmission towers have been temporarily diverted in order to establish dialogue with a comet, 'A is for Annulment' is a popular children's song, and fraternities are notorious for drunken hooliganism. 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 56th in Greater Ixnay and 143,608th in the world for Lowest Crime Rates, scoring -1,168.85 on the Relative Freedom From Crime Index.
