The Aristocracy of Woodfall Swamp is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by King Odwja with an even hand, and renowned for its conspicuous electricity pylons, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 22.936 billion Woodfallians 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 tiny, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Barra. The average income tax rate is 1.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Woodfallian economy, worth a remarkable 7,158 trillion Golden Leaves a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 312,108 Golden Leaves, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Town nameplates frequently raise giggles from passing tourists, politicians tend to jump ship to whichever party is currently leading in the polls, Jennifer Government is a bestseller, and remote-control hang-gliding scarecrows patrol the skies to keep songbirds from leaving the nation's borders. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Woodfall Swamp's national animal is the Monkey, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Temple of Woodfall.

Woodfall Swamp is ranked 76,084th in the world and 203rd in Forest for Highest Drug Use, scoring 79.8 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
