The Magocracy of Magisteria is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Grand Magister Sable with an iron fist, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, avowedly heterosexual populace, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.143 billion Magisterians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Magisterium. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 12.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Magisterian economy, worth 851 trillion Little Glass Phials of Mercury a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 270,857 Little Glass Phials of Mercury, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 950,369 per year while the poor average 55,998, a ratio of 17.0 to 1.

There are traffic jams at sea as diligent customs officers check every part of every ship, credit scores fluctuate wildly with every change of government, hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock", and police frequently raid drugstores in search of contraband bottles of New Spice aftershave. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Magisteria's national animal is the Black Phoenix, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Atheism.

Magisteria is ranked 20,436th in the world and 5th in Cynosure for Smartest Citizens, with 60.51 Quips Per Hour.
