The Warm Texture of Wood is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its avowedly heterosexual populace, prohibition of alcohol, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 12.565 billion Woodians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 46.2%.

The all-consuming Woodian economy, worth a remarkable 1,160 trillion Golds a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Tourism. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is 92,384 Golds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 287,913 per year while the poor average 22,777, a ratio of 12.6 to 1.

Administrative districts are increasingly defined by their taste in housing architecture, public incontinence is a growing problem amongst the nation's women, doctors spend more time writing sick notes than caring for the sick, and the intelligence community is playing 4-D chess with an imaginary spy network. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wood's national animal is the Elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Wood is ranked 87,767th in the world and 144th in The Free Nations Region for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 46.2 Effective Tax Rate.
