The Remnant Flight Colony of Woods Is Back is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Captain Barry with a fair hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, compulsory military service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 7.32 billion Mandalorians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vista Station. The average income tax rate is 79.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Mandalorian economy, worth a remarkable 1,191 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 162,761 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The poor are often seen pale and dizzy after selling their blood to make ends meet, the nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments, prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators, and battlefield gains are quickly lost when enemies don't respect a time-out. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Woods Is Back's national animal is the Womprat, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Woods Is Back is ranked 228,456th in the world and 62nd in The Bar on the corner of every region for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 22.05 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
