The Sultanate of Demis Puppet is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Mentor with an iron fist, and notable for its national health service. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 3.022 billion Demis Puppetians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Roma. The average income tax rate is 87%, and even higher for the wealthy. A substantial private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

The airship business has been driven out of the country by strict regulations and high fines, Demis Puppet's schoolchildren are manufactured into a segregated bunch of soldiers, religious zealots, and computer technicians, the Ministry of Truthiness now manages the entire media industry, and terrified tympanists are finding themselves on the front lines armed only with kettledrums. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Demis Puppet's national animal is the Valencine, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Dilion.

Demis Puppet is ranked 5th in Omega Assassins and 100,784th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -13 on the Hayek Index.
