The Wanderificous Wandom of Wand is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Wander Wand with an even hand, and remarkable for its national health service, compulsory military service, and soft-spoken computers. The compassionate population of 5.721 billion Wandians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wand City. The average income tax rate is 28.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Wandian economy, worth 481 trillion Wands a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. Average income is 84,227 Wands, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The government is a clear-cut case of tyranny by majority, UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, and shelters struggle to keep up with the endless intake of stray animals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wand's national animal is the wand, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Wand is ranked 93,848th in the world and 266th in Birb for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 57.11 on the Hayek Index.
