The Principality of Demonos is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Lady Vera with an iron fist, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, soft-spoken computers, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 5.118 billion Demons are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.

The medium-sized, corrupt, liberal, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Education, although Healthcare, Administration, and Environment are also considered important, while International Aid receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vapula Prolex. The average income tax rate is 78.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Demonosian economy, worth a remarkable 1,275 trillion Cruxes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 249,121 Cruxes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Trespassers entering Lady Vera's office are immediately vaporized, lobster tastes best when it is red, Great Grey Owl is one of the most popular forenames in Demonos, and UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Demonos's national animal is the Great Grey Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Luciferianism.

Demonos is ranked 4,404th in the world and 8th in Hell for Largest Black Market, with 509 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
