The Democratic Republic of Demai is a very large, genial nation, notable for its state-planned economy and soft-spoken computers. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 184 million Demaians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Education, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 23.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Demaian economy, worth 4.76 trillion Demaian Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 25,867 Demaian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, the national security service are a bunch of crooks, prankster scientists legally change their names to silly pseudonyms before major discoveries, and gift hampers filled with delicious beef jerky are sent to newly communist nations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Demai's national animal is the Stardurst Cat.

Demai is ranked 137,615th in the world and 6,911th in The North Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 117.39 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
