The Sylvan Kingdom of Willow Gate is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Benevolent Mistress with an even hand, and renowned for its national health service, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 2.564 billion Gateholders are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 95.2%.

The all-consuming Willow Gatean economy, worth 236 trillion florins a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. Average income is 92,256 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government offers gay men mildly offensive tips on how to pass as straight, anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, many parents are becoming frustrated with their children's choices in spouses, and birth rates have hit an all-time low. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Willow Gate's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Willow Gate is ranked 2,177th in the world and 37th in the West Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 9,233.41 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
