The Light 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 free-roaming dinosaurs, digital currency, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 17.596 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 96.8%.

The frighteningly efficient listening economy, worth a remarkable 2,681 trillion golden 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 152,366 golden cosines, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss, the government is spending millions on alternative clean-burning fuels, orphans would rather live their life of luxury than be adopted by prospective parents, and traumatised refugees have a full bedpan shoved into their hands along with their immigration papers. 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 230,735th in the world and 7,982nd in the South Pacific for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 4,875.74 Standard Monetary Units.
