The Grand Duchy of Wizardonia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Arch-Mage Mario with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, daily referendums, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 16.476 billion Wizardonians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government is primarily concerned with Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. 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 6,263 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 380,182 Sigils, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is popularly believed that "cheese every day keeps disaster away", the "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Sorceria Times is sold out, trespassers entering Arch-Mage Mario's office are immediately vaporized, and census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate. 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 232,398th in the world and 8,737th in The East Pacific for Most Devout, with 1.19 Prayers Per Hour.
