United States of Woodward

LeaderThe Big W


The Southeast Texan Republic of United States of Woodward is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by The Big W with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 15.048 billion Woodwardians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Houston. The average income tax rate is 99.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Woodwardian economy, worth a remarkable 2,808 trillion Dollars a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 186,626 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cutting-edge missile systems are being retrofitted to twin-prop air force biplanes, funeral directors are frequently looking at their watches during funerals, a widely accepted trade policy is "tit-for-tat", and old dogs don't have to learn new tricks but they have to prove they haven't forgotten old ones. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. United States of Woodward's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

United States of Woodward is ranked 4,032nd in the world and 8th in Texas for Most Developed, scoring 94.55 on the Human Development Index.
