The Zazy Nation of Demo-Dog is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, digital currency, and public floggings. The quiet, industrious population of 5.515 billion Demo-Dogians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hawkins. The average income tax rate is 41.9%.

The all-consuming Demo-Dogian economy, worth 552 trillion dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Tourism. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 100,192 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.

Mining safety laws are often more expensive than what's being mined, Leader's peyote-induced "let's all just be friends" speech is trending world-wide, on-call doctors who check their pagers during movies are banned from cinemas for life, and the new national mascot has to be wheeled onto the field of play. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Demo-Dog's national animal is the Demogorgon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Demo-Dog is ranked 3,722nd in the world and 4th in Zazumo for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 9,428.04 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
