The Mad King of Hell of The Stalker is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Mad King of Hell with an iron fist, and notable for its public floggings, smutty television, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 17.686 billion Damned Souls 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 is primarily concerned with Defense, with Spirituality, Industry, and Environment also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hell. The average income tax rate is 99.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Damned to Hell economy, worth an astonishing 13,161 trillion Souls a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, Retail, and Trout Farming. Average income is a breathtaking 744,175 Souls, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,598,942 per year while the poor average 89,268, a ratio of 40.3 to 1.

Nuclear submarines have been deployed to protect the nation's banana supply, the homeless more often beg for mercy than money, burnout is common with anti-government demagogues, and the government insists that bizarre Lilliputian language game shows were made domestically. Crime is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The Stalker's national animal is the White Rabbit, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Discordianism.

The Stalker is ranked 209,729th in the world and 53rd in Hell for Safest, scoring 1.32 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
