The Intruder of Hells Bells is a colossal, safe nation, notable for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The cynical, devout population of 5.533 billion Intruders are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Spirituality, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Agraces City. The average income tax rate is 70.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but sluggish Intruder economy, worth 137 trillion A Random Currencies a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving and Uranium Mining. Average income is 24,930 A Random Currencies, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is seen to favor traditionalist religions, it is illegal to make racist remarks in public, Harry Potter books are banned, and all government facilities are built in the subterranean citadel of New Agraces City. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hells Bells's national animal is the A Random Animal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Hells Bells is ranked 169,017th in the world and 246th in Frozen Circle for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 47.43 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
