The Grand Duchy of ForestMythal is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Magnus with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.447 billion ForestMythalians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

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 90.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming ForestMythalian economy, worth 169 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 117,339 Manas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tech-mad citizens think that the laser-powered bread-slicer uPhone App is the coolest thing since sliced bread, pre-takeoff checks last longer than the flights themselves, young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables, and high school band practice is often crashed by technicolor-clad ravers. 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 83,604th in the world and 2,293rd in The North Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 169 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
