The Zombie in the Sky of Witchcraft and Sorcery is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Mayor Cardinal with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, rampant corporate plagiarism, and digital currency. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 17.658 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 Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Night Vale. The average income tax rate is 96.9%.

The frighteningly efficient listening economy, worth a remarkable 2,728 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 mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 154,530 cosines, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Over a third of the seats in sports stadiums have been removed to make room for female-only commodes, most barbers are also surgeons, older ladies are inundated with offers to help them cross the road, and lawyers spend as much time preparing their make-up as they do their briefs. 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 237,890th in the world and 8,015th in the South Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -18.89 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
