The Little Voice In Your Head of Witchcraft and Sorcery is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Mayor Cardinal with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and lack of airports. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 18.491 billion listeners hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Night Vale. The average income tax rate is 97.6%.

The frighteningly efficient listening economy, worth a remarkable 2,987 trillion cosines a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 161,553 cosines, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hostage-takers offer loyalty scheme points for prompt payment, atheistic refugees haven't got a prayer of being granted asylum, prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators, and men are finding 'she spots' more easily but they can't use them. Crime is totally unknown. Witchcraft and Sorcery's national animal is the mysterious hooded figure, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is never looking back.

Witchcraft and Sorcery is ranked 974th in the world and 29th in the South Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 11,940.19 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
