The Magical Girl Haven of Twilight Town is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Homura Akemi with an iron fist, and renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime, hatred of cheese, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 17.334 billion Puella Magis are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Healthcare, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mitakihara Town. The average income tax rate is 99.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Meguca economy, worth a remarkable 8,759 trillion Grief Seeds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 505,335 Grief Seeds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field, citizens who fail to follow the official national religion are executed, failed genetic experiments wreak havoc as they roam the countryside, and infantry are nicknamed "mushrooms" because they get fed crap and are left in the dark. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Twilight Town's national animal is the Incubator, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Church of Madokamism.

Twilight Town is ranked 72,101st in the world and 80th in Spiritus for Most Armed, with 0.49 Weapons Per Person.
