The Corporatocracy of Dalria is a colossal, efficient nation, renowned for its public floggings, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 5.439 billion Dalrians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vauraus. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Dalrian economy, worth a remarkable 1,039 trillion Barus a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 191,155 Barus, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,166,104 per year while the poor average 13,842, a ratio of 84.2 to 1.

Police struggle to solve crimes due to the lack of fingerprint records, corrupt industrial practices are spreading like a plague, people think garlic bread counts as one of their "five a day", and the new 'Who Wants To Be A Politician' election debate auditions are more popular than the debates themselves. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Dalria's national animal is the Hedgehog, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Consumerism.

Dalria is ranked 40,790th in the world and 1,387th in Osiris for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 3,385.96 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
