The Grand Duchy of Wizardonia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Arch-Mage Mario with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, soft-spoken computers, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 15.511 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 government is primarily concerned with Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. 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 5,843 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 376,740 Sigils, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites, tourists need only sign on the dotted line to become citizens, parents often leave their kids in the car while they attend mindfulness meditation sessions, and there is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality. 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 515th in the world and 17th in The East Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 13,159.12 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
