The Cursed Burning Legions of Hellslayer is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Lord Demon Jax Arcanic with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 3.466 billion Demons 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ironpoint. The average income tax rate is 81.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hellslayerian economy, worth 665 trillion Souls 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and 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. Average income is an impressive 192,065 Souls, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Six-year-old children playing dress-up are viewed with suspicion, the armed forces pride themselves on being conventional and predictable, friendly fire incidents usually result in severe burns, and red text rains down on the head of anyone who dares to step out of line (Hellslayer has found 2 easter eggs). Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hellslayer's national animal is the Devil, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Jaxania.

Hellslayer is ranked 177,060th in the world and 297th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Most Pro-Market, scoring -72.89 on the Rand Index.
