The Republic of Dematin is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 573 million Dematinians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 70.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Dematinian economy, worth 34.0 trillion Dollar's 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 slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Woodchip Exports. 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 59,271 Dollar's, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

All government communication requires the imprimatur of the Truth Police, older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, marine biology students are shocked to discover that a whale is a mammal, and hostage-takers offer loyalty scheme points for prompt payment. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dematin's national animal is the dove, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Dematin is ranked 123,307th in the world and 9th in Schutzstaffel for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -20.16 on the Hayek Index.
