The Delicate Sound of Thunder of The Gates of Delirium is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 13.69 billion Delirians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defence, and Healthcare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Path of Glory. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 53%. A robust private sector is led by the Uranium Mining industry, followed by Information Technology and Arms Manufacturing.

The Gates of Delirium successfully hosted the the West Pacific Olympics, The Gates of Delirium is increasingly belligerent on the international stage, The Gates of Delirium has designated The Path of Glory as its capital city, and Leader has just been declared ruler of The Gates of Delirium in an international press conference. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. The Gates of Delirium's national animal is the Coiled Snake, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Church of Westwind, and its currency is the Fugit.

The Gates of Delirium is ranked 2,370th in the West Pacific and 73,854th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -7 on the Hayek Index.
