Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Federation of Woodstead is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Guardian Directorate with a fair hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.507 billion Woodsteasians 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.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Woldland. The average income tax rate is 85.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Woodsteadian economy, worth 612 trillion Woodsteasian Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 64,440 Woodsteasian Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

W-SPAN viewership drops as MPs act their age, the nation's politicians are acknowledged as the most polite in the region to the dismay of comedians everywhere, royalist is the most offensive slur in the Woodsteadian language, and political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Woodstead's national animal is the Red Deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Woodstead is ranked 138,357th in the world and 24th in Astyria for Most Conservative, scoring 25.62 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index.
