The Rogue Nation of Alien Magic is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Kang with an iron fist, and remarkable for its strictly enforced bedtime, pith helmet sales, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 31.158 billion Alien Magicians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The minute, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alien Magic City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Alien Magician economy, worth an astonishing 17,044 trillion kidneys a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Gambling, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is a breathtaking 547,020 kidneys, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 5,123,764 per year while the poor average 4,919, a ratio of 1,041 to 1.

There's a bright dawn ahead for Alien Magic, unwary hikers climbing the bluffs of Mount Alien Magic City make great practice for foreign snipers, the government is lending a hand to private industry, and diplomats shake hands with their right and hide a poison dagger in their left. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Alien Magic's national animal is the ox, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Worship of the Mighty Kidney.

Alien Magic is ranked 641st in the world and 1st in Gatesville Inc for Most Armed, with 25.56 Weapons Per Person.
