The Unstable State of Dementistan is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Insanity with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ubiquitous missile silos, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 12.154 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 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 95.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Dementistanian economy, worth a remarkable 3,688 trillion Dementis a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Retail, Arms Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 303,477 Dementis, with the richest citizens earning 5.8 times as much as the poorest.

Scenic tours are unheard of after most environmental laws were abolished, saying "don't do anything that Insanity wouldn't do" doesn't exclude a great deal, ticket touts are blamed for the downfall of communism, and billions of Dementis are being poured into a space program. 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 233,735th in the world and 4,430th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -35.83 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
