The Academic Dominion of Woollevia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by His Royal Swellness with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, enslaved workforce, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 23.33 billion Woollevians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Woolham. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 71.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Woollevian economy, worth an astonishing 14,473 trillion lugnuts a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Soda Sales. Average income is a breathtaking 620,402 lugnuts, with the richest citizens earning 5.9 times as much as the poorest.

Recent events in Dàguó have been classified 'for His Royal Swellness's eyes only', citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', there's nothing more gay than bleeding for your nation, and police nightsticks see use all day long. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Woollevia's national animal is the kraken, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Our Lady of the Red Ball.

Woollevia is ranked 22nd in the world and 1st in The North Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 9,999 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
