The Mystery Cult of Demeter is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Demeter with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, public floggings, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, cheerful population of 22.956 billion Demeteriuses are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mount Olympus. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Demeter economy, worth a remarkable 7,531 trillion grains a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 328,089 grains, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation leads Greek Islands in per capita stalking, giggling elementary school newspaper reporters want to know why Demeter is a silly poophead, 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Demeter's radio stations, and pareidolic SETI scientists swear there's a message from aliens hidden within pi. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Demeter's national animal is the horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Eleusian Mysteries.

Demeter is ranked 276,851st in the world and 9th in Greek Islands for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -50.06 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
