The Holy Empire of Lucifism is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its fear of technology, compulsory military service, and lack of airports. The compassionate, devout population of 237 million Demons are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 41.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Lucifian economy, worth 18.2 trillion Souls a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 76,983 Souls, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Elementary school students are required to master Bach's Chaconne in D before graduation, the rainbow assortment of chemicals in the water has turned the frogs gay, billions of Souls are being poured into a space program, and anyone who sneezes at border crossings is turned away. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lucifism's national animal is the Hell Hound.

Lucifism is ranked 209,333rd in the world and 58th in Venice for Most Secular, with 13.1 Atheism Rate.
