The Forested Republic of Edible Plywood is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, state-planned economy, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, humorless population of 16.902 billion Plywoodians 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 large government prioritizes Environment, with Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Defense receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dorito City. The average income tax rate is 97.7%.

The very strong Plywoodian economy, worth a remarkable 2,032 trillion credits a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 120,271 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Psychiatrists bizarrely accompany Leader to meetings with foreign heads of state, the comic book series 'Leader and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller, the national census includes an opt-in to join the government-run dating service, and the Plywoodian Intelligence Agency relies on internet search engines to know what is happening overseas. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Edible Plywood's national animal is the harvest mouse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Edible Plywood is ranked 218,927th in the world and 392nd in Forest for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring -12.05 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
