The Scary Eye of The Church of Satan is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Magus L with an iron fist, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, vat-grown people, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 17.407 billion Satanians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Decompression Chamber. The average income tax rate is 98.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Satanian economy, worth a remarkable 3,091 trillion Greeds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 177,607 Greeds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Decompression Chamber spends billions upgrading public transport, young people avoid opening doors for the elderly with impunity, paranoid museum guards keep a lookout for any animated displays attempting to escape the premises after dark, and the nation's new foreign policy of 'very disproportionate retribution' has its neighbors on edge. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Church of Satan's national animal is the Sin, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Satanism.

The Church of Satan is ranked 11,274th in the world and 272nd in the Rejected Realms for Best Weather, with 204 Meters Of Sunlight.
