The Principality of Demonos is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lady Vera with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, free-roaming dinosaurs, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.98 billion Demons 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 prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Defense also on the agenda, while International Aid is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vapula Prolex. The average income tax rate is 73.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Demonosian economy, worth 894 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 a large, well-organized, 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 224,810 Cruxes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Kids' party bags often contain candy and e-cigarettes, many suspect that the 'Whinny The Plop' children's magazine contains covert criticism of Lady Vera, international terrorists often get their weapons supply in Demonos, and invasive species are hunted by the gendarmerie. 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 Faith.

Demonos is ranked 193,914th in the world and 7,034th in Lazarus for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.84 Crimes Per Hour.
