The Free Land of The Witch Kingdom is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Hekate with a fair hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, feral children, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 1.129 billion Witches live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Broomstick. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 39.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Witchling economy, worth 140 trillion litres of blood a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Automobile Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 124,135 litres of blood, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 379,785 per year while the poor average 31,428, a ratio of 12.1 to 1.

Competing private ambulances racing to be the first to traffic accidents are a major cause of road accidents, from the highest mountain to the deepest cave - one can always count on finding a good cell signal in The Witch Kingdom, politicians tack on a service charge for assisting with casework, and the nation has returned to more conventional warfare to slaughter its enemies. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The Witch Kingdom's national animal is the wyvern, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Eleutheria.

The Witch Kingdom is ranked 57,517th in the world and 39th in The City of Ba Sing Se for Most Developed, scoring 63.07 on the Human Development Index.
