|Leader||The Mad King of Hell|
The Mad King of Hell of The Stalker is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Mad King of Hell with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, avowedly heterosexual populace, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 17.892 billion Damned Souls are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
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 99.0%.
The frighteningly efficient Damned to Hell economy, worth an astonishing 13,313 trillion Souls a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, Retail, and Trout Farming. Average income is a breathtaking 744,109 Souls, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,598,622 per year while the poor average 89,260, a ratio of 40.3 to 1.
Nuclear submarines have been deployed to protect the nation's banana supply, the homeless more often beg for mercy than money, burnout is common with anti-government demagogues, and the government insists that bizarre Lilliputian language game shows were made domestically. 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.
