The Pride Realms of The Church of Satan is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Magus L with an iron fist, and remarkable for its closed borders, museums and concert halls, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 13.471 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 The Decompression Chamber. The average income tax rate is 97.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Satanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,310 trillion Greeds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 171,534 Greeds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Snapgram channel "Embarrassing Baby Magus L Pics" has made Magus L's mom a celebrity, movie producers send film critics wads of cash in their morning newspapers in anticipation of gushing praise, many friends and relatives of Magus L have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations, and the government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life. 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 Laveyan Satanism.

The Church of Satan is ranked 4,406th in the world and 103rd in the Rejected Realms for Most Developed, scoring 92.99 on the Human Development Index.
