Animalferal hydra

The Federal Commonwealth of Demescia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Dimitro Ilioraza with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, otherworldly petting zoo, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 9.589 billion Demescians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Combre. The average income tax rate is 95.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Demescian economy, worth a remarkable 1,719 trillion trapeins a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 179,325 trapeins, with the richest citizens earning 6.4 times as much as the poorest.

The Department of Reduction of Bureaucratic Red Tape has set up a working committee to investigate its own excessive paperwork, the "temporary replacement bus service" is now a permanent fixture, food voucher forgeries are causing headaches for the police, and explosive diarrhoea is not just a colorful phrase. Crime is totally unknown. Demescia's national animal is the feral hydra, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Jovoism.

Demescia is ranked 163,985th in the world and 9,519th in The North Pacific for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -24.08 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
