The Still Best in TSP of Witchcraft and Sorcery is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Mayor Cardinal with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 17.881 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Night Vale. The average income tax rate is 97.3%.

The frighteningly efficient listening economy, worth a remarkable 2,906 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 162,541 cosines, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sex changes are routinely performed at Witchcraft and Sorcery's hospitals, voting is voluntary, 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Witchcraft and Sorcery's radio stations, and the new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction. 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 238,432nd in the world and 7,759th in the South Pacific for Most Armed, with 0.14 Weapons Per Person.
