The Matriarchy of Sorceress Morgana is a huge, genial nation, notable for its absence of drug laws, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 377 million Sorceress Morganans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Avalon. The average income tax rate is 74.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Sorceress Morganan economy, worth 14.7 trillion Fays 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 Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is 39,000 Fays, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Arbitrary election rules are considered sacrosanct, the big red machine has ground to a halt, high school boys are required to pass vigorous self-mastery and sensitivity training to graduate, and Bigtopian interference in domestic elections is always democratically sanctioned. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sorceress Morgana's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Sorceress Morgana is ranked 197,661st in the world and 3rd in The Goddesses for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -51.09 on the Hayek Index.
