The Most Serene Republic of Delight is a colossal, genial nation, renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, national health service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.079 billion Delightists are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Elathuria. The average income tax rate is 81.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Delightian economy, worth 509 trillion Brass Buttons a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 83,806 Brass Buttons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nouveau riche farmers diligently take care of their golden calf herds, unstable couples are known to break up over which one gets parental leave, student athletes gaze forlornly at abandoned Death Meadow Dragonball fields, and sales of pregnancy testing kits are booming. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Delight's national animal is the Death Meadow Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Delight is ranked 11,463rd in the world and 262nd in the Rejected Realms for Longest Average Lifespans, with 91.04 Years.
