The Democratic Republic of Woodapple is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The One and Only Sempai with an even hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working population of 1.138 billion Woodapples have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Apple Tree. The average income tax rate is 68.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Woodapplean economy, worth 97.6 trillion cheeses a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 85,797 cheeses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has pledged that not one drop of its citizens' blood will be spilt, a fashion designer has been arrested for inciting hatred after claiming redheads couldn't pull off vermillion, pawn shop reality shows dominate basic cable, and the latest "must-have" uPhone is 1/4 mm thinner than last year's uPhone. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Woodapple's national animal is the Narwhal, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Woodapple is ranked 33,767th in the world and 15th in Niamark for Lowest Crime Rates, with 73.75 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
