The Sylvan Kingdom of Willow Gate is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Benevolent Mistress with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, hatred of cheese, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 2.102 billion Gateholders are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 94.4%.

The powerhouse Willow Gatean economy, worth 183 trillion florins a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 87,060 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Willow Gate's heavy congestion charges are the bane of motorists' lives, the government has instituted 'traveller reservations' across the country, sex changes are routinely performed at Willow Gate's hospitals, and environmentalists are advocating slash-and-burn in the nation's forests. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Willow Gate's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Willow Gate is ranked 22,966th in the world and 486th in the West Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 80.34 on the Human Development Index.
