The White Wizard of Malkir is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Great Cthulhu with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 5.263 billion Malkirans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Commerce, Education, and Public Transport. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Kobold's Nest. The average income tax rate is 51%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing industries.

Homeless people are periodically found dead upon altars to assorted deities, men avoid even so much as looking at female colleagues, the lowest age at which one can marry has been recently lowered to 12, and Max Barry is this year's Miss Malkir. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Malkir's national animal is the Human, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Cthulhuism, and its currency is the Madness Token.

Malkir is ranked 64th in Mordor and 73,057th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -7 on the Hayek Index.
