The Principality of Demonos is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Lady Vera with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 3.919 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, although Healthcare, Environment, and Administration are also considered important, while International Aid isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vapula Prolex. The average income tax rate is 72.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Demonosian economy, worth 887 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 226,363 Cruxes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Artists from across the nation compete to renovate the restrooms of old government buildings, the recital of citations that follows any political speech can be longer than the speech itself, in a desperate bid for cheap airfare Demons can be seen jogging in a rubber suit just before flying, and conscripts often volunteer for a second tour of duty so they can get a ticket to next year's Army Revue. 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 166,691st in the world and 6,259th in Lazarus for Most Pro-Market, scoring -57.89 on the Rand Index.
