The Grand Duchy of ForestMythal is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Magnus with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.436 billion ForestMythalians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tall Tree Castle. The average income tax rate is 91.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming ForestMythalian economy, worth 165 trillion Manas 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 115,543 Manas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Relations with Dàguó have warmed from frosty to chilly, science centers and state of the art laboratories are ubiquitous, one tree's worth of paperwork accompanies each imported log of timber, and the Snapgram channel "Embarrassing Baby Magnus Pics" has made Magnus's mom a celebrity. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. ForestMythal's national animal is the Pegasus, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

ForestMythal is ranked 17,796th in the world and 994th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 84.91 on the Human Development Index.
