The Mad King of Hell of The Stalker is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by The Mad King of Hell with an iron fist, and notable for its closed borders, zero percent divorce rate, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 16.913 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, although Spirituality, Industry, and Environment are also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy aren't funded at all. 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 12,522 trillion Souls a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, Retail, and Trout Farming. Average income is a breathtaking 740,415 Souls, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,752,562 per year while the poor average 81,040, a ratio of 46.3 to 1.

Absentminded citizens frequently converse with hallucinations, guns don't kill people — heroes do, charity no longer begins at home, and fast-food chefs regularly win Health Innovation Awards for spitting on burgers. 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 75th in the world and 1st in Hell for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 1,596.62 Bank.
