The Murder-Suicide Cult of Hellscapia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by the Prince of Darkness with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, complete lack of public education, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.495 billion Damned are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pandæmonium. The average income tax rate is 91.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Hellish economy, worth 229 trillion sins a year, is highly specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 91,938 sins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Phone taps are frequently carried out by the police, foreign nationals are widely distrusted, the "Dreadnowt" is the pride and joy of the Hellish Navy, and the act of reporting blasphemy is known as 'Orthodoxxing'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Hellscapia's national animal is the human soul, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Satanism.

Hellscapia is ranked 257,553rd in the world and 97th in Underworld for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -27.33 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
