The Sleeping Giant Inn of Witchcraft and Sorcery is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Mayor Cardinal with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 17.023 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, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Night Vale. The average income tax rate is 94.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Witchcraft and Sorceryian economy, worth a remarkable 2,237 trillion cosines a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 131,417 cosines, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Witchcraft and Sorceryian Intelligence Agency relies on internet search engines to know what is happening overseas, there's never enough space in space, chickens frolic freely on swings and roundabouts in Night Vale's playgrounds, and not many kids know Shakespeare's Hamlet but most of them have seen unofficial sequel Hamlet III - The Search For Osric. 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 23,224th in the world and 877th in the South Pacific for Safest, scoring 111.14 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
