The Wicked Realms of Wicko is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by the Principal Warlock with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, sprawling nuclear power plants, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 23.954 billion Wicked are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The tiny, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Great Coven. The average income tax rate is 8.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Wicked economy, worth a remarkable 7,565 trillion μs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 315,836 μs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Selling your granddad's clothes requires an incredible amount of paperwork, drivers regularly pull over for nonexistent police cars, the new "Bloodbath" orange tree autonomously seeks and destroys independent orchards, and nobody draws smiley faces on receipts anymore. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Wicko's national animal is the Hissing Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Wicked Science.

Wicko is ranked 43,041st in the world and 3rd in New Coalition of Nations for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 666.16 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
