The Church of Satan

Population20.64 billion

LeaderMagus L


The Dahar Master of The Church of Satan is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Magus L with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, prohibition of alcohol, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 20.64 billion Satanians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tartarus. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Satanian economy, worth a remarkable 3,621 trillion Greeds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 175,483 Greeds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The line of people waiting for a visa interview in front of foreign embassies is typically a mile long, any citizen who cries is immediately assigned a psychiatrist, the importance of winning Olympic gold medals is indoctrinated from an early age, and the nation's museums are real penny-pinchers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Church of Satan's national animal is the Sin, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Satanism.

The Church of Satan is ranked 242,295th in the world and 5,968th in the Rejected Realms for Most Politically Free, scoring 18.14 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
