The Stormcrow Perihelion of Captain Woodhouse is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by T J Eckleburg with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, flagrant waste-dumping, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 16.908 billion Captain Woodhouseans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The tiny, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Valley of Ashes. The average income tax rate is 2.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Captain Woodhousean economy, worth a remarkable 3,376 trillion $$s a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Gambling. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 199,692 $$s, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

The beauty of coastal towns is marred only slightly by all the closed-down storefronts, crimes are difficult to stop as most of the police force is stuck in traffic, engineers preemptively order lawyers after every power cut, and city workers have declared that rolling markets aren't good for business after all. Crime is a problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Captain Woodhouse's national animal is the ^-^, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Aubrey-Maturinism.

Captain Woodhouse is ranked 6,876th in the world and 4th in BLITZKRIEG for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 13,569.38 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
