Mount Ararat is a tiny moon, just 20km across - but thanks to neutronium at its core it has gravity and an atmosphere. Settled by a family of christian fundamentalists, the children are protected by 'the devil' - a mechanical killing machine. There's also a high security prison on the planet - but there are escapes, including a serial killer who thinks he's father christmas. It's actually a hugely funny satire, with genetically engineered 'McChickens', goats named Faith, Hope, Charity and Shub-Niggurath, slavers, tramp traders, ultra powerful tax accountants, a mysterious hermit, and a high-gravity health spa at the south pole.
