The Grand Duchy of ForestMythal is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Magnus with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, soft-spoken computers, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.039 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 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 79.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming ForestMythalian economy, worth 235 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 impressive 115,274 Manas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The election for Magnus's office's janitor is heating up, traveller camps regularly block five-lane superhighways, libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, and the nation's atlases tend to go out of date every few weeks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. ForestMythal's national animal is the Pegasus, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

ForestMythal is ranked 214,327th in the world and 7,655th in The North Pacific for Most Corrupt Governments, with 0.33 kickbacks per hour.
