The Sultanate of Demis Puppet is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Mentor with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 9.521 billion Demis Puppetians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Roma. The average income tax rate is 92.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Demis Puppetian economy, worth 807 trillion Dilions a year, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 84,768 Dilions, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People seem disproportionately distraught when told a museum has a phones-off policy, counselors have to sign pledges supporting gay rights before they can speak to any patients, political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions, and the nation's official head of religious affairs is an atheist. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Demis Puppet's national animal is the Valencine, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Demis Puppet is ranked 131,965th in the world and 3rd in Omega Assassins for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 17.52 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
