The Mystery Cult of Demeter is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Demeter with an even hand, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cheerful population of 18.795 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 5,793 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 308,257 grains, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Families are left homeless as entire suburbs are bulldozed on the whim of tribal chiefs, young girls and senior citizens alike can be spotted wearing colourful short shorts, most of the population has had bad experiences with hoes, and excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions. 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 42nd in the world and 1st in Greek Islands for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 5,500.59 Tourists Per Hour.
