The Matriarchy of Woodsend is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Oh Great One with an even hand, and notable for its lack of airports, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.445 billion Woodsendians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Woodsend Central. The average income tax rate is 68.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Woodsendian economy, worth 113 trillion florins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 78,557 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government officials go door-to-door educating about the dangers of pseudoscience, schoolboys who turn to watch pretty girls go by are given detention, sex changes are routinely performed at Woodsend's hospitals, and proletariat workers identify less with the hammer and sickle and more with the touchscreen and phone charger. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Woodsend's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Confused and perplexed.

Woodsend is ranked 93,601st in the world and 4,876th in The North Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 19.28 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
