The Dominion of Dementistan is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Insanity with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, keen interest in outer space, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.029 billion Dementistanis 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 juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dementistan City. The average income tax rate is 92.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Dementistanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,579 trillion Dementis 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Retail, Arms Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, and Uranium Mining. 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 257,238 Dementis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Ten thousand Dementistanian soldiers recently invaded a nation occupied by two senior citizens and a dachshund, epidemiologists happily announce that the reported incidence of depression is close to zero percent, burning members of the Order of Violet is the nation's favorite pastime, and stone wrist watches that weigh 20lb are the latest trend. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Dementistan's national animal is the Majestic Moose, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Questionable Choices.

Dementistan is ranked 6,738th in the world and 304th in the Rejected Realms for Nudest, with 911 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
