The Final Stand of The Magical Ring is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Merlin with an even hand, and notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, ritual sacrifices, and enslaved workforce. The humorless, devout population of 22.039 billion Magical Ringians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mythic town. The average income tax rate is 88.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Magical Ringian economy, worth a remarkable 3,101 trillion Rings a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 140,713 Rings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

TV shows must meet strict ethnicity quotas, the recently unemployed can often be seen at the local homeless shelter, corporate innovation has effectively ended since ideas can no longer be owned, and the education system is being cleansed of all corporate influence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Magical Ring's national animal is the phoenix, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is a major religion.

The Magical Ring is ranked 195,196th in the world and 1st in Forks for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 27.31 Tourists Per Hour.
