The Lucifer Morningstar of Club Lux is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Lucifer Morningstar with an even hand, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, state-planned economy, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed population of 11.613 billion Heathens and Demons have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Healthcare, although Industry, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Penthouse. The average income tax rate is 11.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Demonic economy, worth a remarkable 1,383 trillion Pentecostal Coins 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 a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Retail, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Soda Sales. 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 an impressive 119,105 Pentecostal Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Political activists are routinely executed, new arrivals are asked the location of the Minister of the Interior's birthmark, war criminals are given full state funerals, and excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Club Lux's national animal is the Lost Soul, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Satanism.

Club Lux is ranked 8,356th in the world and 175th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring 7,861.62 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
