The Familial Spirits of Devil Heart is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Matilda Love with a fair hand, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, compulsory vegetarianism, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 18.491 billion fiends are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large 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 94.2%.

The frighteningly efficient a fiend economy, worth a remarkable 3,567 trillion devils a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 192,940 devils, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Soldiers have a preference for fire-and-forget payloads, patriotic citizens chant "there's only one Devil Heart" at foreigners, evenings at university debating societies often end with everyone acknowledging both sides may well be right, and autopsies often involve only cursory examination. 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 176,207th in the world and 143rd in Canada for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -41.33 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
