The Grand Duchy of Wizardonia is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Arch-Mage Mario with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 20.588 billion Wizardonians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government is primarily concerned with Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sorceria. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Wizardonian economy, worth a remarkable 8,253 trillion Sigils 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 led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 400,889 Sigils, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, the song 'They Got an Awful Lot of Coffee in Wizardonia' is a smash hit, 4-year-olds are often found reminiscing about the 'good old days', and more sidewalk is dedicated to animals than people. Crime is totally unknown. Wizardonia's national animal is the Penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Atheism.

Wizardonia is ranked 305,554th in the world and 363rd in Forest for Most Primitive, scoring -1335.88 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
