United States of Woodward

Population17.797 billion

CapitalNew Houston
LeaderThe Big W


The Southeast Texan Republic of United States of Woodward is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Big W with a fair hand, and notable for its triple-decker prams, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 17.797 billion Woodwardians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Houston. The income tax rate is 100.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Woodwardian economy, worth a remarkable 3,313 trillion Dollars a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 186,162 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ambulances aren't allowed to overtake hearses, Woodwardian junkies argue that poppy stalks are ornamental flowers, owning a really cute pet is grounds for immediate investigation, and history textbook pages are used as impromptu tissues by distraught students. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. United States of Woodward's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

United States of Woodward is ranked 240,147th in the world and 190th in Texas for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -35.58 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
