The Most Serene Republic of Delight is a colossal, safe nation, notable for its irreverence towards religion, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 8.194 billion Delightists enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Elathuria. The average income tax rate is 87.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Delightian economy, worth 692 trillion Brass Buttons a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 84,523 Brass Buttons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Woefully uninformed voters cast their ballots at random, employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams, local executives are seen on the corner with cardboard signs reading "will oppress the masses for food", and the long arm of the law possesses a rather slow hand. 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 222,623rd in the world and 6,483rd in the Rejected Realms for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring -3.16 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
