Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Federation of Woodstead is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Guardian Directorate with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.841 billion Wodes 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 85.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Woodsteasian economy, worth 619 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 62,926 Woodsteasian Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Royalist is the most offensive slur in the Woodsteasian language, political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations, gambling is outlawed, and social media sites go into shutdown for days at a time to censor user content. 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 9,759th in the world and 3rd in Astyria for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,570.7 Tourists Per Hour.
