The Mystery Cult of Demeter is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Demeter with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, keen interest in outer space, and national health service. The compassionate, cheerful population of 20.398 billion Demeteriuses have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mount Olympus. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Demeter economy, worth a remarkable 6,452 trillion grains a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 316,338 grains, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Bored politicians often entertain themselves with games of Simon during important votes, scientists earn more grant money for reproducing old experiments than trying anything new, explicit slash fiction is repackaged for kindergarten kids as stories about friends cuddling friends, and the fattest folk in Demeter look to be the happiest ones. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Demeter's national animal is the horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Eleusian Mysteries.

Demeter is ranked 7,788th in the world and 2nd in Greek Islands for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 8,476.47 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
