The Southeast Texan Republic of United States of Woodward is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by The Big W with an even hand, and notable for its triple-decker prams, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 10.853 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 government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Industry also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Houston. The average income tax rate is 99.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Woodwardian economy, worth a remarkable 2,006 trillion Dollars a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 184,834 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The United States of Woodward Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, cricket farmers use magnifying glasses to fit every member of their herd with tiny tracking tags, the regional delicacy of chocolate bombes is deadlier than an unexploded bomb, and sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed. 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 181,413th in the world and 191st in Texas for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -34.03 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
