The Dispoilers of Hellspire Mountains is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Archaon the Everchosen with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.526 billion Hellspire Mountainsians 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 prioritizes Defense, with Education, Administration, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Molten Core. The average income tax rate is 88.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hellspire Mountainsian economy, worth a remarkable 1,620 trillion Deniers 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, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Retail. 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 amazing 357,936 Deniers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The government's giant servers are often used as a tourist trap, cogitators and mass debaters are skiving off work to hang around the National Symposium Park, unwary hikers climbing the bluffs of Mount The Molten Core make great practice for foreign snipers, and government spending has hit an all-time low. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Hellspire Mountains's national animal is the Chaos Spawn, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Hellspire Mountains is ranked 161,232nd in the world and 79th in Soviet Democracy for Most Devout, with 2.89 Prayers Per Hour.
