The Realm of Wicko is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Principal Aksov Ivahl with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, unlimited-speed roads, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 21.135 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 Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Church of All Saints. The average income tax rate is 55.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Wicked economy, worth a remarkable 5,981 trillion Жoperniҝs 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 slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. 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 283,013 Жoperniҝs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Wicked Tuna populations thrive as dogs are slaughtered in the millions, organ donation is compulsory, 'A is for Annulment' is a popular children's song, and the government's stance on marriage is 'Let Wicked marry themselves'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Wicko's national animal is the Wicked Tuna, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Wicked Science.

Wicko is ranked 3,638th in the world and 3rd in New Coalition of Nations for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 7,067.5 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
