The Rippling Green Needle-Sea of Coniferous Forests is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Connie Ferous with an iron fist, and renowned for its ritual sacrifices, aversion to nipples, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.492 billion Forestians 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 enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Treehouse. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 72.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Coniferous Forestsian economy, worth 432 trillion Needles a year, is highly specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Gambling, Retail, Basket Weaving, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 123,721 Needles, with the richest citizens earning 8.4 times as much as the poorest.

Religious bigotry is not allowed but bigotry against theism is encouraged, claiming that "my cousin said it was legal" is a common courtroom defense, the people are famous throughout the region for their perfect yellow teeth, and tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests. Crime is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Coniferous Forests's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Druidism.

Coniferous Forests is ranked 50,635th in the world and 50th in Forest for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 8.37 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
