The Republic of -Rain Delay- is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its ban on automobiles, keen interest in outer space, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 4.646 billion -Rain Delay-ians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 54.1%.

The thriving -Rain Delay-ian economy, worth 343 trillion Silvers a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 73,836 Silvers, with the richest citizens earning 6.3 times as much as the poorest.

Only lightning has a chance of striking Leader twice, some are born loving old plays and some have old plays thrust upon them, 100-year-old politicians are now a thing of the past, and business is adjusting to new gender equality policies in the workplace. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. -Rain Delay-'s national animal is the Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

-Rain Delay- is ranked 74,170th in the world and 96th in The Invaders for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 6.33 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
