The Confederacy of Delcovia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Mikey Escobar with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, complete lack of public education, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful population of 27.314 billion Delcovians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Healthcare and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Media. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Delcovian economy, worth an astonishing 10,855 trillion deadprezzes a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Soda Sales, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 397,430 deadprezzes, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,576,369 per year while the poor average 67,666, a ratio of 23.3 to 1.

Public incontinence is a growing problem amongst the nation's women, the diplomatic corps tends to open negotiations by insulting all the foreigners in the room, a newly discovered small mammal's name translates into Delcovian as 'your finger, you fool', and Delcovia's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Delcovia's national animal is the platypus, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is No Established Church.

Delcovia is ranked 242,822nd in the world and 10,255th in Lazarus for Lowest Crime Rates, with 1.5 law-abiding acts per hour.
