The Hegemony of Delberz is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Hegemon Kira Tarkin-McBride with an iron fist, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, ubiquitous missile silos, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 19.972 billion Delberzians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Administration also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Minas Delberz. The average income tax rate is 27.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Delberzian economy, worth a remarkable 7,008 trillion marks a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 350,915 marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Immigrant herding has become a national pastime, modelling agencies send their clients to work in nursing homes, the environment is gorgeous so long as you're looking up, and biological warfare is used to solve small disagreements. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Delberz's national animal is the Boar, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Lectitio Divinitatus.

Delberz is ranked 376th in the world and 9th in Osiris for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 83.52 Whatever.
