The Empire of WoodsWinter49 is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Shinedown204 with an iron fist, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, prohibition of alcohol, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.736 billion WoodsWinter49ians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Administration also on the agenda, while Welfare isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shinedown204. The average income tax rate is 96.4%.

The frighteningly efficient WoodsWinter49ian economy, worth a remarkable 1,086 trillion Woods a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 397,211 Woods, with the richest citizens earning 9.5 times as much as the poorest.

There's no cure or sympathy for the common cold, distant and obscure male relatives succeed to the WoodsWinter49ian throne, WoodsWinter49ian soldiers are assured their new ray-guns will finally power up after the next round of ominous chanting, and strange lights seen in the sky are officially regarded as weather balloons or hoaxes and nothing else. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. WoodsWinter49's national animal is the Dog, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Shinedown204.

WoodsWinter49 is ranked 239,182nd in the world and 14th in The Atheist Empire for Best Weather, with -45 Meters Of Sunlight.
