The Undead Empire of Woolitania is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by WooShell with a fair hand, and remarkable for its enslaved workforce, anti-smoking policies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 27.176 billion Woolitanians 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 minute, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Woolitania City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Woolitanian economy, worth a remarkable 7,386 trillion woolians a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 271,815 woolians, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.

Drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking, the opposition leader's credibility has been undermined by constant attention drawn to a dodgy toupee, the installation of street lights across remote goat tracks has left citizens bemused, and airplane passengers who purchase "basic economy" tickets are often assigned seats in the lavatory. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Woolitania's national animal is the woolpertinger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Woolitania is ranked 1,036th in the world and 22nd in Forest for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 106.56 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
