The Most Serene Republic of Delight is a gargantuan, safe nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, complete lack of prisons, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 10.727 billion Delightists enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Elathuria. The average income tax rate is 91.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Delightian economy, worth 993 trillion Brass Buttons a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. Average income is 92,617 Brass Buttons, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

'A is for Annulment' is a popular children's song, grinding bureaucracy has the international wheels of justice turning slowly, producers insist that movie stars wear crash helmets in every scene, and ignorance is considered a politically desirable quality. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Delight's national animal is the Death Meadow Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Delight is ranked 265,193rd in the world and 6,637th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -24.58 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
