The Lizards of Wizards is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Hraigamald Vesseket with an iron fist, and renowned for its fear of technology, lack of airports, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.482 billion Acolytes are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Spirituality, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 21.6%.

The powerhouse Wizardsian economy, worth 515 trillion Scepts a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Basket Weaving, and Retail. Average income is 49,132 Scepts, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 162,621 per year while the poor average 11,091, a ratio of 14.7 to 1.

Concussed Orlonkball players cannot remember their lineup position, atheists on vacation find designed to turn people into slaves's scriptures make useful doorstops, the nation's air force consists of strongly-worded letters folded into paper airplanes, and taxpayer-funded government ads are promoting Brancaland as a premier filming location. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Wizards's national animal is the Orlonk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is designed to turn people into slaves.

Wizards is ranked 206,116th in the world and 4th in The Departure Lounge for Fattest Citizens, with 7.48 Obesity Rate.
