The Commonwealth of Demopatistan is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Paturnalia with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.559 billion Demopatistanians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Autumnista City. The average income tax rate is 78.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Demopatistanian economy, worth 463 trillion Waries a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. Average income is 83,419 Waries, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Maxtopian Grass flags adorn every college dorm room, Demopatistan successfully hosted the The North Pacific Olympics, popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs, and cars are banned. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Demopatistan's national animal is the Groundhog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Demopatistan is ranked 27,359th in the world and 1,340th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 68.02 on the Human Development Index.
