The Republic of Dellengard is a very large, safe nation, renowned for its daily referendums, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 132 million Dellengardians 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 large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 66.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Dellengardian economy, worth 3.99 trillion Cues a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Basket Weaving, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 30,214 Cues, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Park rangers struggle to deal with a rash of stolen pic-a-nic baskets, criminals always seem to be forewarned of police raids, religious education is a new government priority, and only 'organics' are permitted to be citizens. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dellengard's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Dellengard is ranked 27,112th in the world and 1,316th in The North Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 80 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
