The Substitutiary Locomotion of Captain Woodhouse is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by T J Eckleburg with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, sprawling nuclear power plants, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 22.76 billion Captain Woodhouseans are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Valley of Ashes. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Captain Woodhousean economy, worth a remarkable 8,168 trillion $$s a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 358,892 $$s, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,335,957 per year while the poor average 3,555, a ratio of 938 to 1.

From the highest mountain to the deepest cave - one can always count on finding a good cell signal in Captain Woodhouse, it is typical to be greeted by a string of curse words in Captain Woodhousean restaurants, competing private ambulances racing to be the first to traffic accidents are a major cause of road accidents, and citizens must pay to enjoy Captain Woodhouse's pristine beaches. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Captain Woodhouse's national animal is the Death's-head hawkmoth, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Aubrey-Maturinism.

Captain Woodhouse is ranked 260,185th in the world and 22nd in BLITZKRIEG for Healthiest Citizens, with 0.31 bananas ingested per day.
