Location: Astyria


The Republic of Woodstead is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Guy Moore and Oscar Quay with a fair hand, and notable for its restrictive gun laws. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 4.401 billion are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whoever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of the Environment, Education, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Woldland. The average income tax rate is 66%, and even higher for the wealthy. 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 arms industry is strictly regulated, hunters have been known to lose limbs while attempting to 'play tag' with their prey, oil executives can be seen reluctantly cleaning oil-soaked birds, and discarded pennies litter the streets. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. Woodstead's national animal is the Westpool Minke, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Credit.

Woodstead is ranked 6th in Astyria and 34,460th in the world for Highest Drug Use, scoring 81 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
