The Theocracy of Mage People is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its frequent executions, lack of airports, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 730 million Mages are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, well-organized government prioritizes Spirituality, although Law & Order, Defense, and Administration are also considered important, while Social Policy and Industry are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Portal. The average income tax rate is 22.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Mage economy, worth 29.9 trillion Magics a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Arms Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 40,949 Magics, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Mage People recently decided against having a capital city, the government mails weekly updates on the new anti-junk mail laws to every citizen, children are expected to carve their own toys, and businesses are abandoning the city centre because of the lack of transport connections. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Mage People's national animal is the Mystic Goat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Mage People is ranked 36,229th in the world and 4th in New Normandy for Most Extreme, scoring 27.44 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
