Animalferal hydra

The Federal Commonwealth of Demescia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Dimitro Iliopoulos with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, rampant corporate plagiarism, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 9.307 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, liberal, 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 1,659 trillion pence a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 178,272 pence, with the richest citizens earning 5.9 times as much as the poorest.

Open-casket funerals are avoided at all cost, the year's most anticipated show is "Great Deals on Delicious Meals", gigantic marble churches take up almost half the land area of small villages, and the amount welfare recipients spend on fertilizer has exploded. 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 111,043rd in the world and 5,676th in The North Pacific for Most Income Equality, scoring 16.83 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
