Hello :-)
Default Demographic reports in analytics include Language and Country data of visitors.
These do not need to be enabled in order for reporting to occur.
Maybe it is spam data that is being reported?
Do you have filters applied to help reduce the possibility of spam data occuing in reports?
You can read more about that here:
