The Mystery Cult of Demeter is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Demeter with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful population of 20.006 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 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 6,278 trillion grains a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 313,830 grains, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Voters must frequently select what they view as the lesser of two evils on the ballot, criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat, a new guerrilla marketing campaign for tap water involves government agents spraying random citizens with hose water, and the mining industry has taken a hit from tighter environmental regulations. 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 27th in the world and 1st in Greek Islands for Most Beautiful Environments, with 13,285.66 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
