The World of Sathan is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Satan with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, rampant corporate plagiarism, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 22.922 billion Sathanians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Valhalla. The average income tax rate is 83.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sathanian economy, worth a remarkable 5,321 trillion dracs a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 232,171 dracs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Forest fires have dropped dramatically as there are hardly any forests left, a crusade against barbaric religious practices has begun, school uniforms are compulsory, and politicians accost strangers in the street to ask their problems. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sathan's national animal is the werewolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Satanism.
