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 remarkable for its fear of technology, lack of airports, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 18.222 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, although Spirituality, Industry, and Environment are also considered important, 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 13,577 trillion Souls a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, Retail, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is a breathtaking 745,120 Souls, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Family bonding sessions are considered immoral and are banned, citizens are told that foreigners are hungry ghosts who eat the flesh of the overly curious, lottery winners spend most of their money on security, and many in The Stalker are born in the purple. 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 161st in the world and 2nd in Hell for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 26,323.53 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
