There might be two versions. Any person the 'State' calls evil would qualify according to Romans:13 if the included definitions are tweaked a bit. With God it is any person who believes that the sinful person that sits on a throne in Jerusalem is God. At the end of the 4 days that is allowed to happen those people will be sent to a special part of the grave where they have an opportunity to ponder their mistakes. Those will be 2/3 of all the living on the planet when God is pulling the strings and no idea what it would be when men are trying to be god themselves.

And all the kings of the north,
far and near,
one with another,
and all the kingdoms of the world,
which are upon the face of the earth:
and the king of Sheshach shall drink after them.
I begin to bring evil on the city which is called by my name,
and should ye be utterly unpunished?
Ye shall not be unpunished:
for I will call for a sword upon all the inhabitants of the earth,
saith the LORD of hosts.
A noise shall come even to the ends of the earth;
for the LORD hath a controversy with the nations,
he will plead with all flesh;
he will give them that are wicked to the sword,
saith the LORD.
Thus saith the LORD of hosts,
evil shall go forth from nation to nation,
and a great whirlwind shall be raised up from the coasts of the earth.
And the slain of the LORD shall be at that day from one end of the earth even unto the other end of the earth:
they shall not be lamented,
they shall be dung upon the ground.
When the Son of man shall come in his glory,
and all the holy angels with him,
then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:
And before him shall be gathered all nations:
and he shall separate them one from another,
as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:
