The Evil Principality of Darkness-Hell on Earth is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by The Prince of Darkness with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, ban on automobiles, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.383 billion Suffering bastards are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Spirituality, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hell on Earth. The average income tax rate is 79.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Darkness-Hell on Earthian economy, worth 101 trillion Merrecas a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, extremely specialized black market in Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 15,945 Merrecas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Vets have been drafted in to help "fix" those who fail the parental license exam, the police force is rumoured to be made up of evil shadows with no souls, government bureaucrats shut down teenage yard-raking businesses for being counter-revolutionary, and the most popular stadium acts are one-off performances. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Darkness-Hell on Earth's national animal is the Zombie, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Darkness-Hell on Earth is ranked 177,654th in the world and 7,948th in the South Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 8.28 on the Human Development Index.
