Animaltotally not an angel

The Heavy metal drummer of Witchcraft and Sorcery is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Mayor Cardinal with a fair hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, rampant corporate plagiarism, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 12.628 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, Industry, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Night Vale. The average income tax rate is 93.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Witchcraft and Sorceryian economy, worth a remarkable 1,619 trillion cosines a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 128,259 cosines, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Movie references are legally admissible in court, the Witchcraft and Sorceryian Arts Council pays teenagers to sit through opera performances, children are raised bilingual from an early age, and Members of Parliament operate under a PAYE scheme. Crime is totally unknown. Witchcraft and Sorcery's national animal is the totally not an angel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is never looking back.

Witchcraft and Sorcery is ranked 135,397th in the world and 1,061st in 10000 Islands for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -6.12 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
