The United Republic of Demirestad is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Wessen Keitreiz with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.133 billion Stadians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Verdensk. The average income tax rate is 90.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Demirestadian economy, worth 539 trillion Kannzers a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 130,500 Kannzers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Many suspect the government "doth protest too much" with their curiously specific denials of conspiracy theories, the government builds houses for foreign newcomers, no one is quite sure what many government officials look like, and lifelong celibates are surprised to receive government-issue condoms in the post. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Demirestad's national animal is the Kelorer Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Demirestad is ranked 12,337th in the world and 2nd in Mahakam for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 9,571.63 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
