The Free Land of Wooden is a small, genial nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy and irreverence towards religion. The democratic population of 29 million Woodenians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 16.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Woodenian economy, worth 1.34 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Pizza Delivery, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 46,115 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All-natural foods are becoming a major fad, the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, senior executives have become freelance basket-weavers in search of less stress and better work-life balance, and one does not simply walk into the tundra. Crime is totally unknown. Wooden's national animal is the panther.

Wooden is ranked 138,161st in the world and 4,637th in the South Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 1.34 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
