The Dominion of Dementistan is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Insanity with an iron fist, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, pith helmet sales, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.024 billion Dementistanis 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 juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dementistan City. The average income tax rate is 92.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Dementistanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,571 trillion Dementis 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Retail, Arms Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, and Uranium Mining. 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 256,532 Dementis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Former slave-owners hope there are no hard feelings when they apply for jobs from their erstwhile charges, children are disappointed to learn that cavemen never had a yabba-dabba-doo time riding dinosaurs to work, many say faith is a crutch for those who can't move forward, and cholera is seen as the holiest of diseases. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Dementistan's national animal is the Majestic Moose, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Questionable Choices.

Dementistan is ranked 6,739th in the world and 306th in the Rejected Realms for Nudest, with 912.25 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
