The Maddened Wizard of Fizban is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Efernaldred Koran Collins with an iron fist, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, ubiquitous missile silos, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 5.745 billion Fizbans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ankh-Morpork. The average income tax rate is 76.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Fizbanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,009 trillion septums a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 175,668 septums, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Big Agriculture has the government by the nuts, faking deafness is the only way to guarantee a holiday in the nation, the government struggles to keep up with the endless list of petrol disasters, and insanely good theatre productions face government censorship. Crime is totally unknown. Fizban's national animal is the Gorfursyat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Thaumaturgy.

Fizban is ranked 14,500th in the world and 737th in The North Pacific for Largest Governments, scoring 29.58 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
