The Church of Satan

Population21.34 billion

LeaderMagus L


The Satania Empire of The Church of Satan is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Magus L with an iron fist, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, parental licensing program, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 21.34 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 98.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Satanian economy, worth a remarkable 3,861 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, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 180,935 Greeds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The fate of the world literally rests on Magus L's fingers, sheepish teenagers are making eye contact with their parents for the first time in a decade during state-enforced 'no-phones hour', children spend all morning taking out a comma and all afternoon putting it back in again, and handling people's data is proving an immersive experience. 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 67,015th in the world and 1,412th in the Rejected Realms for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 215,002 Standard Monetary Units.
