The Rippling Green Needle-Sea of Coniferous Forests is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Connie Ferous with an iron fist, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.671 billion Forestians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Treehouse. The average income tax rate is 58.8%.

The very strong Coniferous Forestsian economy, worth 122 trillion Needles a year, is quite specialized and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Retail, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 73,199 Needles, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.

Only women may wear the crown of Coniferous Forests, the Ministry of Health has reported a sharp increase in the incidence of delayed menopause, customs officials often double as wedding officiants, and immigrants are asked to leave their cultural traditions and pride at the border. Crime is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Coniferous Forests's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Druidism.

Coniferous Forests is ranked 196,494th in the world and 414th in Forest for Least Corrupt Governments, with 65.15 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
