The Lucifer Morningstar of Club Lux is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Lucifer Morningstar with an even hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, complete absence of social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 7.049 billion Heathens and Demons enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, corrupt, liberal government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, with Education, Healthcare, and Defense also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Penthouse. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Demonic economy, worth 946 trillion Pentecostal Coins a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Soda Sales, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 134,315 Pentecostal Coins, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 737,744 per year while the poor average 12,429, a ratio of 59.4 to 1.

The nation grinds to a halt on the anniversary of every marginally noteworthy event, multiple births are a cause of celebration for tax collectors, the nation's historic treasures have been sold off to Maxtopia's "Museum of Demonic Artifacts That They're Too Stupid to Appreciate", and an extra hand on the leg will give a horse-and-a-half of lead in a hundred jiffies on seven furlongs. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. 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 94,438th in the world and 97th in Grace of Gaia for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 1,604.22 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
