The Mystery Cult of Demeter is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Demeter with an even hand, and renowned for its avant-garde cinema, public floggings, and frequent executions. The compassionate, cheerful population of 23.225 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 7,637 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 328,828 grains, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Demeter has been recently classified as an international menace after 'liberating' several nearby territories, tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, abortions are routinely performed in the nation's hospitals, and teenagers are told they're not thinking about sex enough. 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 732nd in the world and 1st in Greek Islands for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 39,360.61 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
