The Forest Realm of Wolfhawk is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by GLJordan with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 33.454 billion Wolfhawkians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Curiosity City. The average income tax rate is 99.6%.

The large but stagnant Wolfhawkian economy, worth 529 trillion lanterns a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 15,821 lanterns, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, the phrase 'spreading like wildfire' is no longer in the public lexicon, government employees from Wolfhawk dominate international lumberjack competitions, and social networking sites have discussion groups devoted to planning terrorist attacks. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wolfhawk's national animal is the ferret, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Silver Empress.

Wolfhawk is ranked 160,824th in the world and 2nd in Emeraldise for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -58.36 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
