The Two-Armed Democracy of Delaces is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Almighty President-King Lance with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 12.8 billion Delacesians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pluto City. The average income tax rate is 96.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Delacesian economy, worth a remarkable 1,923 trillion Laces a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 150,244 Laces, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The art of conversation has been rediscovered, there have been sightings of people walking around dressed in nothing but leopard-skin g-strings for 'religious reasons', holiday light displays just aren't the same without seizure-inducing strobe effects, and the Delaces Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Delaces's national animal is the Cobra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cult Of the Almighty Pluto.

Delaces is ranked 4,724th in the world and 7th in The Black Hawks for Most Developed, scoring 94.72 on the Human Development Index.
