The Magical Forces of Humba Wumba is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Humba Wumba with an even hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, daily referendums, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed population of 2.486 billion Shamans 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.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wumba's Wigwam. The average income tax rate is 79.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Shaman economy, worth 297 trillion Silvers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Uranium Mining, Soda Sales, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 119,752 Silvers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Every political party claims that their platform is based on divine revelation, Humba Wumba is considering changing the nation's name to Blackacre, kids are arrested at gunpoint for playing with toy rifles, and government officials have to mortgage their homes to make ends meet. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Humba Wumba's national animal is the Glowbo, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Shamanism.

Humba Wumba is ranked 74,114th in the world and 1st in Warzone Vacation Resort for Rudest Citizens, with 59.28 Insults Per Minute.
