The Royalty of Demon666 is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Ares with an iron fist, and renowned for its digital currency, zero percent divorce rate, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 7.46 billion Demon666ians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of City of Athena. The average income tax rate is 88.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Demon666ian economy, worth a remarkable 1,414 trillion Euros 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 Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Woodchip Exports. 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 189,578 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Business is banging at no-tell motels, prolonged government investigations are a common revenge tactic among spurned significant others, the military claims that their threatening letters are signed with the blood of their enemies, and travelers are subject to extensive searches if beet stains are visible on their clothing. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Demon666's national animal is the Snake, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Demon666 is ranked 220,830th in the world and 952nd in Europe for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.66 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
