The Principality of Demonos is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lady Vera with an iron fist, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, state-planned economy, and soft-spoken computers. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 3.931 billion Demons are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Administration also on the agenda, while International Aid is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vapula Prolex. The average income tax rate is 73.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Demonosian economy, worth 882 trillion Cruxes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 224,482 Cruxes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The most popular WhoTube videos are ones featuring parodies of iconic songs, authorities are looking for a stool pigeon to rat out who is stealing food from pigeon toilets, public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers, and criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Demonos's national animal is the Great Grey Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Faith.

Demonos is ranked 23,453rd in the world and 1,393rd in Lazarus for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 5,206.45 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
