Shadow Governments, Lack of
or "Separation of Twilight Zone and State"

      There are thousands of good reasons why magic doesn't rule the world. They're called witches and wizards, Magrat reflected, as she followed the others back to the road.
      It was probably some wonderful organisation on the part of Nature to protect itself. It saw to it that everyone with any magical talent was about as ready to co-operate as a she-bear with a toothache, so all that dangerous power was safely dissipated as random bickering and rivalry.
Wyrd Sisters, Terry Pratchett

Granted that magic and other stuff like that can't be brought to public attention, what stops a group of esoterics from ruling a nation or the world from behind the scenes, using the Sundering as a cloak to hide behind while they play "hidden masters" or "shadow government" (in the conspiracy-theorist, not parliamentary, sense)?
