The Principality of Demonos is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Lady Vera with an iron fist, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, state-planned economy, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 5.435 billion Demons are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.

The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Education, with Healthcare, Administration, and Environment also on the agenda, while International Aid receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vapula Prolex. The average income tax rate is 79.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Demonosian economy, worth a remarkable 1,388 trillion Cruxes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 255,415 Cruxes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A rusted hulk in Vapula Prolex harbour has been voted the worst eyesore in Hell, thieves find battery shops juicier targets than banks, wilderness-dwelling hermits are surprised to find railway stations on their front doorsteps, and mandatory updates on software drivers often bring life to a halt. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Demonos's national animal is the Great Grey Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Luciferianism.

Demonos is ranked 1,510th in the world and 3rd in Hell for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 29,460.34 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
