The Mad King of Hell of The Stalker is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by The Mad King of Hell with an iron fist, and remarkable for its enslaved workforce, frequent executions, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 14.695 billion Damned Souls are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Spirituality, Industry, and Environment are also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hell. The average income tax rate is 98.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Damned to Hell economy, worth an astonishing 10,677 trillion Souls a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, Retail, and Trout Farming. Average income is a breathtaking 726,625 Souls, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,455,113 per year while the poor average 159,062, a ratio of 15.4 to 1.

Glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, the backs of 'No Trespassing' signs were made for you and me, foreign militias and child smuggling rings will always love The Mad King of Hell, and Jennifer Government is banned. Crime is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The Stalker's national animal is the White Rabbit, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Discordianism.

The Stalker is ranked 68,648th in the world and 36th in Hell for Most Extreme, scoring 20.43 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
