The Cursed Burning Legions of Hellslayer is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Lord Demon Jax Arcanic with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory vegetarianism, disturbing lack of elderly people, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 5.019 billion Demons 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, moralistic, 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 Inferno. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 71.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Hellslayerian economy, worth a remarkable 1,419 trillion Souls a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 282,776 Souls, with the richest citizens earning 8.6 times as much as the poorest.

The men in trenchcoats hanging around playgrounds are actually police officers, formerly fertile fields are being leached dry of nutrients by intensive farming, machine-peeled candied grapes come in individual packaging for the busy commuter, and a stocking with a crooked seam or a tie without a full Windsor knot are grounds for instant dismissal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hellslayer's national animal is the Devil, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Jaxania.

Hellslayer is ranked 660th in the world and 3rd in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 1,119.62 Bank.
