Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Sultanate of Demis Puppet is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Mentor with an iron fist, and notable for its prohibition of alcohol, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 5.39 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."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Roma. The average income tax rate is 93.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Demis Puppetian economy, worth 474 trillion Dilions a year, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 87,985 Dilions, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nightly news reports prosaically on the government blindly throwing money at despotic kidnappers, toilet paper is considered a non-essential item in the embargo against Brasilistan, Brasilistan has been announced as the nation's newest colony, and Brasilistanis face layers of paperwork in a different language just to visit a doctor. 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.

Demis Puppet is ranked 2nd in Omega Assassins and 25,010th in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring 141 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
