The Jingoistic States of Magicia is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its lack of airports, frequent executions, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, devout population of 1.059 billion Magicians 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 prioritizes Spirituality, with Administration, Industry, and Education also on the agenda, while Law & Order and Welfare receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 41.3%.

The powerhouse Magical economy, worth 72.6 trillion deniers a year, is quite specialized and led by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 68,575 deniers, with the richest citizens earning 5.7 times as much as the poorest.

People who stay late at the office often come home to find their own funeral being planned, M-SPAN features senators wrestling with ever-increasing production elements, death row is annually emptied to feed the nation's hunger for televised murder-games, and cold medicines curiously become cheaper when government officials sneeze. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Magicia's national animal is the beaver, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Magicia is ranked 212,353rd in the world and 7th in The New Republic of the Philippines for Fattest Citizens, with 9.02 Obesity Rate.
