The Community of Wands and Wizards is a colossal, cultured nation, notable for its public floggings, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.849 billion Wands and Wizardsians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wand Wizard City. The average income tax rate is 76.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Wands and Wizardsian economy, worth 615 trillion golden snitches a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Furniture Restoration, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 62,449 golden snitches, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Party leaders rely on horoscopes to create "ticket balance", the government's stance on marriage is 'Let Wands and Wizardsians marry themselves', the government is notorious for leaving citizens with almost nothing from their inheritance, and court cases mostly involve lawyers shouting questions at witnesses giving silent shrugs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wands and Wizards's national animal is the snowy owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Wands and Wizards is ranked 127,032nd in the world and 3,558th in the Rejected Realms for Most Valuable International Artwork, with zero Bank.
