The Wanderificous Wandom of Wand is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Wander Wand with an even hand, and notable for its enslaved workforce, state-planned economy, and national health service. The compassionate population of 8.638 billion Wandians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wand City. The average income tax rate is 33.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Wandian economy, worth 695 trillion Wands a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 80,535 Wands, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The government is a clear-cut case of tyranny by majority, UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, and shelters struggle to keep up with the endless intake of stray animals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Wand's national animal is the wand, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Wand is ranked 113,653rd in the world and 1,538th in Birb for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 545.11 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
