The Little Voice In Your Head of Witchcraft and Sorcery is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Mayor Cardinal with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 20.313 billion listeners hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Night Vale. The average income tax rate is 97.6%.

The frighteningly efficient listening economy, worth a remarkable 3,329 trillion cosines a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 163,930 cosines, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government keeps introducing new foreign species to combat the previous ones it has introduced, the WASBI Channel Tunnel project is plagued by delays, unemployed accountants keep double-entry ledgers of their benefit claims, and nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers. Crime is totally unknown. Witchcraft and Sorcery's national animal is the mysterious hooded figure, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is never looking back.

Witchcraft and Sorcery is ranked 4,693rd in the world and 144th in the South Pacific for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 100.29 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
