The Hell Hole of Terrians is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by THE ANIMAL with an iron fist, and notable for its triple-decker prams, avowedly heterosexual populace, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 37.352 billion vermins are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Industry and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hell. The average income tax rate is 96.6%.

The frighteningly efficient vermin economy, worth an astonishing 27,337 trillion golden fists a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is a breathtaking 731,888 golden fists, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 6,699,818 per year while the poor average 8,595, a ratio of 779 to 1.

Corrupt industrial practices are spreading like a plague, the nationalistic national anthem inspires citizens to literally spit at foreigners, armed police are cracking down on untaxed collectable-card-trading in local junior schools, and toxic smog is dismissed as the populace just "letting off steam". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Terrians's national animal is the Fist, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is OBEY OR DIE.

Terrians is ranked 244,628th in the world and 10,756th in Lazarus for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -226 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
