The Unholy Empire of HellsLink is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Lucifer with an iron fist, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, zero percent divorce rate, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.768 billion Golden 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, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Environment, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of HellsGate. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 48.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Golden economy, worth 206 trillion Skull Fragments a year, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 116,617 Skull Fragments, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 535,585 per year while the poor average 15,407, a ratio of 34.8 to 1.

Baby boys who pick up pink crayons are sent to a psychiatric ward, politicians look weirdly alike, a milk bath costs more than bathing in money, and GP clinics are inundated by patients requesting prescriptions for alcohol. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. HellsLink's national animal is the Golden Squirrel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Six Chaos Gods.

HellsLink is ranked 46,982nd in the world and 2,692nd in The East Pacific for Most Authoritarian, with 1,167 milliStalins.
