The Cursed Burning Legions of Hellslayer is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Lord Demon Balthazar Sturm with an iron fist, and notable for its fear of technology, anti-smoking policies, and compulsory vegetarianism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 7.854 billion Demons are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Infernum. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 88.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Demonic economy, worth a remarkable 3,175 trillion Souls a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 404,302 Souls, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,859,176 per year while the poor average 19,175, a ratio of 149 to 1.

Card players are calling the government's bluff on anti-gambling legislation, wealthy Demons never seem to hear the doorbell, many believe that the only good Devil is a dead Devil, and people forget to eat because they are too busy singing Lord Demon Balthazar Sturm's praises. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a 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 Temple of Umbra.

Hellslayer is ranked 180,359th in the world and 236th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Highest Poor Incomes, with 19,175.85 Standard Monetary Units.
