The Matriarchy of WITCH 23 is a massive, orderly nation, renowned for its absence of drug laws and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 1.115 billion WITCH 23ians are ruled with an iron fist by the socialist government, which grants its people the freedom to do whatever they like so long as it doesn't involve getting richer than anybody else or challenging the government.

The large, liberal, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 37.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish WITCH 23ian economy, worth 19.7 trillion Waibans a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 17,674 Waibans, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. WITCH 23's national animal is the Waiban.

WITCH 23 is ranked 161,473rd in the world and 5,108th in Codex Ylvus for Most Pro-Market, scoring 13 on the Rand Index.
