The Mystery Cult of Demeter is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Demeter with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, avant-garde cinema, and lack of airports. The compassionate, cheerful population of 19.539 billion Demeteriuses are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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 6,089 trillion grains a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 311,657 grains, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Soldiers on first dates introduce themselves only by their ranks and serial numbers, space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space, the military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms, and all weapon research has been banned. 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 150,927th in the world and 6th in Greek Islands for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 43.62 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
