OverviewDispatchesPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The Empire of HellSpire is a massive, orderly nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 3.605 billion HellSpireans 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 relatively small, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 55.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient HellSpirean economy, worth 756 trillion Golds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 209,911 Golds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Invasive drug testing is now performed at elementary school sports days, citizens finish cleaning up after the annual National Treasure Hunt just in time for the next one, visiting dignitaries make excuses to leave functions early and head to the nearest pub, and the government seizes private property for the 'good of the people'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. HellSpire's national animal is the Bat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

HellSpire is ranked 8,080th in the world and 436th in The North Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 103.27 quips per hour.
