Location: The North Pacific

Regional Influence: Shoeshiner


The Matriarchy of Woodsend is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Oh Great One with an even hand, and notable for its digital currency, anti-smoking policies, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.614 billion Woodsendians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Woodsend Central. The average income tax rate is 68.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Woodsendian economy, worth 129 trillion florins 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 led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 80,326 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sex changes are routinely performed at Woodsend's hospitals, proletariat workers identify less with the hammer and sickle and more with the touchscreen and phone charger, community-designed sword prostheses are becoming dangerously common, and wilderness-dwelling hermits are surprised to find railway stations on their front doorsteps. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Woodsend's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Confused and perplexed.

Woodsend is ranked 68,503rd in the world and 3,458th in The North Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 69.71 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
