The Dragon's Realm of Demoness is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Her Divinity Empress Jia Li with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, infamous sell-swords, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 38.464 billion Demonessians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sacred Rock. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Demonese economy, worth an astonishing 10,620 trillion kataus a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 276,116 kataus, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 957,108 per year while the poor average 58,153, a ratio of 16.5 to 1.

Politicians tend to jump ship to whichever party is currently leading in the polls, chickens frolic freely on swings and roundabouts in Sacred Rock's playgrounds, Her Divinity Empress Jia Li's webseries about the alleged hauntings of Sacred Rock generates millions of views, and unpackaged foodstuffs rot on store shelves. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Demoness's national animal is the Demonese King Cheetah, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is the Church of Demoness.

Demoness is ranked 30,679th in the world and 1st in The Cursed Continent of Lodoss for Most Extreme, scoring 32.11 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
