The Side Co-Prosperity Sphere of Demiurges is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Supreme Commander Wilhelm Johan Lichkeit with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, flagrant waste-dumping, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.677 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, although Law & Order, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy 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 80.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Demiurgesian economy, worth a remarkable 1,594 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Retail, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 340,858 Credits, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,705,994 per year while the poor average 38,250, a ratio of 44.6 to 1.

Garden stores are not allowed to sell water butts, stealing from a clothesline is a serious offence, the government officially wants you to slow down and speak more clearly, and citizens are barcoded to keep track of their movements. 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 Legion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Demiurges is ranked 705th in the world and 15th in The East Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 1.71 million Standard Monetary Units.
