The Hushed Shade of Northern Wood is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Kagan of the Wood with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, smutty television, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.706 billion Taiga Folks love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Radagast's Rest. The average income tax rate is 99.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Taiga Folk economy, worth a remarkable 1,517 trillion amber thorns a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 265,932 amber thorns, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life, pedal-powered removal vans are a popular Maxxmas gift for the children of separated parents, Kagan of the Wood's new door-knocking campaign has the sweet taste of success, and construction workers evacuate work sites after finding sharp rocks on the ground. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Northern Wood's national animal is the Northern Moose, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Wildsong.

Northern Wood is ranked 18,837th in the world and 61st in Forest for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 5,483.77 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
