In Ostrobia, farmwoods are a tier of local government administered as a standard LGA where there is little or no urban population. Farmwoods exist in Heblo, Alnet, South Central and Haliheim. 'Farmwoods' also exist in New North Wales and Maine, but they are governed by another county.
At present there are 53 farmwoods in Ostrobia. Generally a farmwood has less than 50,000 inhabitants and at least four major census locations ('major' = at least 1,000 population). Farmwoods that do not meet these rules can be absorbed.
