The Remnant Flight Colony of Woods Is Back is a huge, socially progressive nation, ruled by Lachlan Lewis with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, otherworldly petting zoo, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 762 million Correlians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Bonker. The average income tax rate is 68.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Correlian economy, worth 102 trillion Credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 134,371 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

There is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality, children need to wear helmets and safety harnesses before mounting a carousel horse, a firework a day does not in fact keep the doctor away, and referenda are held for every conceivable government action. Crime, especially youth-related, 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.

Woods Is Back is ranked 24,006th in the world and 19th in The Bar on the corner of every region for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 263,106.17 Standard Monetary Units.
