The Wicked Realms of Wicko is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by the Principal Warlock with an iron fist, and renowned for its smutty television, free-roaming dinosaurs, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 25.715 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 relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Great Coven. The average income tax rate is 47.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Wicked economy, worth a remarkable 8,569 trillion нехs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 333,257 нехs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Petitioners are increasingly resorting to climbing through the Principal Warlock's window to draw attention to their issues, a murderous reputation can revitalise a flagging celebrity career, people are always complaining about dam builders running behind schedule, and the government's giant servers are often used as a tourist trap. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Wicko's national animal is the Hissing Cat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Wicked Science.

Wicko is ranked 15,286th in the world and 7th in New Coalition of Nations for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 18.51 Bank.
