OverviewFactbookDispatchesPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Woodstead is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Guy Moore and Oscar Quay with a fair hand, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, intelligent population of 5.518 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent 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 70%, 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.

Citizens are remarkably well involved in the political process, rioting during the nation's hosting of ORDER caused one million Woodsteasian Credits of property damage, there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, and recruitment posters proclaim the army to be both fabulous and fashionable. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. Woodstead's national animal is the Red Deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Woodsteasian Credit.

Woodstead is ranked 16th in Astyria and 17,950th in the world for Most Dedicated Public Healthcare, scoring 53 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
