The Sultanate of Demis Puppet is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Mentor with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, national health service, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 10.59 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 897 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 90,555th in the world and 2nd in Omega Assassins for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 456.27 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
