The Union of Egoists of Little Woodhouse is a gargantuan, genial nation, notable for its frequent executions, anti-smoking policies, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 36.554 billion Little Woodhouseans 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, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Social Policy. The income tax rate is 100%.

The enormous but sluggish Little Woodhousean economy, worth a remarkable 5,708 trillion Proletarian Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. 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 156,170 Proletarian Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Modelling agencies send their clients to work in nursing homes, politicians tend to speak more loudly and slowly these days, a suspicious number of John Smiths are known to donate to Little Woodhousean politicians, and politicians spend a lot of time hanging around kids' playgrounds. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Little Woodhouse's national animal is the running dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Little Woodhouse is ranked 23,087th in the world and 36th in The Internationale for Nudest, with 218 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
