Animalferal hydra

The Federal Commonwealth of Demescia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Dimitro Ilioraza with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, smutty television, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 10.159 billion Demeskanos 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 95.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Demeska economy, worth a remarkable 1,826 trillion trapejnoes a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 179,745 trapejnoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation', most households' childcare costs are higher than their mortgage payments, the experimental sculpture "Overtures In Dried Feral Hydra Dung" has been declared a national treasure, and the volume of paperwork used to complete a single environmental assessment defeats the purpose. 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 18,882nd in the world and 719th in The North Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 302,134.83 Standard Monetary Units.
