The Grand Duchy of ForestMythal is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Magnus with a fair hand, and renowned for its soft-spoken computers, ban on automobiles, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.086 billion ForestMythalians 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 large, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tall Tree Castle. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient ForestMythalian economy, worth a remarkable 1,230 trillion Manas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 202,205 Manas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bad punctuation has come to a full stop, solving crossword puzzles requires fluency in at least five languages, the nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics, and veteran cops reminisce over their heavy armor days. Crime is totally unknown. ForestMythal's national animal is the Pegasus, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

ForestMythal is ranked 306,747th in the world and 9,273rd in The North Pacific for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 3,841.91 Standard Monetary Units.
