The Little Voice In Your Head of Witchcraft and Sorcery is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Mayor Cardinal with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, complete lack of prisons, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 19.054 billion listeners hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Night Vale. The average income tax rate is 97.7%.

The frighteningly efficient listening economy, worth a remarkable 3,112 trillion cosines 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 Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 163,326 cosines, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Multiple polls have christened the newly-formed Filibuster Committee as "the least efficient government bureaucracy", kids are taught in schools to argue with their parents, consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, and the minority inevitably have their addenda vetoed. Crime is totally unknown. Witchcraft and Sorcery's national animal is the mysterious hooded figure, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is never looking back.

Witchcraft and Sorcery is ranked 237,150th in the world and 8,955th in the South Pacific for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -22.8 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
