The Unstable State of Dementistan is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Insanity with an iron fist, and remarkable for its fear of technology, public floggings, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 11.361 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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 93.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Dementistanian economy, worth a remarkable 3,310 trillion Dementis a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Retail, Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 291,427 Dementis, with the richest citizens earning 5.4 times as much as the poorest.

Poets and writers are regularly rounded up and shot for entertainment, the banshee wail foretells skies of death, holidaymakers sleep curled up on the floor as hotel beds are replaced with oversized bookcases, and a petition to improve Dementistanian literacy is mostly signed with cross-marks. 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 69,684th in the world and 1,977th in the Rejected Realms for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 5.41 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
