The Sylvan Kingdom of Willow Gate is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Benevolent Monocrat with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 4.341 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, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of King's Eye. The average income tax rate is 96.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Willow Gatean economy, worth 461 trillion lycan florins a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. Average income is an impressive 106,241 lycan florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A little pushing and pulling is needed for big ships to pass, roadside walls are being built and mother nature is paying for it, businesses that prove successful are immediately broken up, and short is not always sweet. 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 241,031st in the world and 7,453rd in the West Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.4 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
