The Federation of Woodstead is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Guardian Directorate with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic population of 10.13 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 85.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Woodsteasian economy, worth 636 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 62,881 Woodsteasian Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations, gambling is outlawed, social media sites go into shutdown for days at a time to censor user content, and stoned tourists don't tend to remember much about their holidays here. 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 13,238th in the world and 4th in Astyria for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 85.84 Effective Tax Rate.
