The State of Demitor is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Jake Riegle with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, avowedly heterosexual populace, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 4.668 billion Demitorians 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 relatively small, corrupt, moralistic government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mckinney. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 18.1%.

The powerhouse Demitorian economy, worth 713 trillion Demitorian Marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 152,838 Demitorian Marks, with the richest citizens earning 7.4 times as much as the poorest.

A handful of megacorporations own every "craft brewery" in the nation, preservative-laden Demitorian cheeses will be as edible when archaeologists dig them up next millennium, Violetist maidens who fall for an outsider must leave their violet light districts in shame, and the cancellation of "The Real Vixens of Mckinney" has been described as a real blow for entertainment. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Demitor's national animal is the Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Iron Christanity.

Demitor is ranked 123,379th in the world and 90th in The Hole To Hide In for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 602.98 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
