The Sultanate of Ash Hel is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its frequent executions, absence of drug laws, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-working, democratic, devout population of 333 million Demonic Orcs have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Grand Palace of Sultan's Landing. The average income tax rate is 36.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Ash Hellian economy, worth 38.4 trillion Pentacles a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Tourism. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 115,371 Pentacles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Eminent domain has been abolished, new legislators take a week-long class entitled "Keeping Your Job: How to Avoid Offending Leader", voodoo economists believe that feeding criminals to volcanoes will bring untold riches to Ash Hel, and a third of Demonic Orcs are e-certified CEOs. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control. Ash Hel's national animal is the Great Horned Demon Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Ash Hel is ranked 164,043rd in the world and 8,803rd in The North Pacific for Most Secular, with 7.59 Atheism Rate.
