The Mad King of Hell of The Stalker is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Mad King of Hell with an iron fist, and remarkable for its triple-decker prams, zero percent divorce rate, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 18.58 billion Damned Souls are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

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 are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hell. The average income tax rate is 99.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Damned to Hell economy, worth an astonishing 13,872 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 746,618 Souls, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Glamping Damned Souls won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi, orthopaedics patients often have a bounce in their step, cheese has become the new icon of political dissent, and exorbitant spending on icebreakers breaks the ice at every budget meeting. 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 183,542nd in the world and 38th in Hell for Most Politically Free, scoring 24.57 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
