The Free Land of Woolitania is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service. Its hard-nosed, intelligent population of 18.943 billion enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Education, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and Defence receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Woolitania City. The average income tax rate is 80%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law, new safety regulations require all cars manufactured in Woolitania to be bombproof, the government is phasing in welfare programmes to tackle poverty, and photographers can be found hiding behind the curtains in Leader's bedroom. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Woolitania's national animal is the woolpertinger, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the woolian.

Woolitania is ranked 11th in Europe and 1,119th in the world for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 79 Whatever.
