The Hellish landscape of HELLLLL is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Bootleg Satan with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, enslaved workforce, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.465 billion HELLLLLians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Industry is also considered important, while Welfare and Education aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dissapointment. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.4%.

The all-consuming HELLLLLian economy, worth 202 trillion Golds a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Uranium Mining, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 82,290 Golds, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 752,705 per year while the poor average 974, a ratio of 772 to 1.

Government ministers are regularly seen in the streets confessing their sins and hammering missiles into plow-shares, what citizens give with one hand they take away with the other, giant no-kill traps baited with Bapst Red Ribbon and vintage bicycles have been popping up in back alleys nationwide, and the "fire department" is often called to remove offensive religious texts. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. HELLLLL's national animal is the Bat, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Satanism.

HELLLLL is ranked 234,543rd in the world and 198th in New Western Empire for Most Developed, scoring 42.78 on the Human Development Index.
