Its Hell

The United States of Its Hell is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lucifer Morningstar with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 2.381 billion Hellians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ninth Circle. The average income tax rate is 56.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hellian economy, worth 254 trillion Sulfur Discs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 107,042 Sulfur Discs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Charity workers dole out hardtack from behind designer sunglasses, future forecasters fearfully discuss grey goo and human obsolescence, senior citizens can usually be found doing heavy manual labour, and immigrant herding has become a national pastime. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Its Hell's national animal is the Bat, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Satanisim.

Its Hell is ranked 905th in the world and 611th in The North Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 155 Valid Endorsements.
