The Republic of Woodstead is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by the Moore-Quay Administration with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, smutty television, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.077 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, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Woldland. The average income tax rate is 82.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Woodsteadian economy, worth 381 trillion Woodsteasian Credits a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 62,777 Woodsteasian Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Recruitment posters proclaim the army to be both fabulous and fashionable, citizens can be frequently spotted going about their business stark naked, the Red Deer is a protected species, and extreme political groups are outlawed. 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 30th in Astyria and 108,211th in the world for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -5 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
