The Republic of Magiclands is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ritual sacrifices, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 354 million Magiclandsians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 15.8%.

The thriving Magiclandsian economy, worth 25.7 trillion Magics a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Retail, and Information Technology. Average income is 72,586 Magics, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 324,545 per year while the poor average 10,066, a ratio of 32.2 to 1.

The government is denying reports that criminals injected with experimental drugs have turned into monstrous supervillains, it is believed that belligerence is a passing phase foreign leaders will soon outgrow, textbooks are exactly twice as heavy as they used to be, and purported secret military bases are dismissed by Leader to be highly-advanced toilet factories. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate. Magiclands's national animal is the Angel, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Magiclands is ranked 152,612th in the world and 784th in Europe for Most Stationary, with 53.00886885208 Days.
