The Side Co-Prosperity Sphere of Demiurges is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Supreme Commander Artesia Lichkeit with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, parental licensing program, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.711 billion Demiurgesians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order and Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jaldabaoth. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 69.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Demiurgesian economy, worth 357 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 209,199 Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 690,564 per year while the poor average 47,413, a ratio of 14.6 to 1.

Napalm is the tool of choice for disabling eco-unfriendly forestry operations, wood-framed catapults are ready to launch diseased corpses into besieged cities, military instructors tire of being asked for another bedtime story by seven-year-old conscripts, and Supreme Commander Artesia Lichkeit's family members carry literal get-out-of-jail-free cards. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Demiurges's national animal is the Amblypigi, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Punishable by Death.

Demiurges is ranked 38,577th in the world and 497th in The East Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 357 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
