The Familial Spirits of Devil Heart is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Matilda Love with a fair hand, and remarkable for its compulsory vegetarianism, free-roaming dinosaurs, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 19.667 billion fiends enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tazz. The average income tax rate is 86.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient a fiend economy, worth a remarkable 3,849 trillion devils a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 195,738 devils, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Hit and run driving is no longer a crime - it's the national sport, nude art is becoming wildly popular, politicians have been known to swim in pools filled with devils, and a petition to make petitions important again has been deemed unimportant. Crime is totally unknown. Devil Heart's national animal is the Tasmanian Devil, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Our Heart of Gathering Shadows.

Devil Heart is ranked 205,588th in the world and 171st in Canada for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring -47.01 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
