The Empire of Deltia- is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, pith helmet sales, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 549 million Deltians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The tiny government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Industry, Administration, and Education are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Warzau. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.6%.

The powerhouse Deltian economy, worth 60.0 trillion riiksmarks a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 109,335 riiksmarks, with the richest citizens earning 9.5 times as much as the poorest.

Surrealist houses shaped like mushrooms and volcanoes dominate the wealthiest neighborhoods, the death penalty has been reintroduced, the Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters, and counselors have to sign pledges supporting gay rights before they can speak to any patients. Crime is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Deltia-'s national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Deltia- is ranked 114,703rd in the world and 192nd in New Western Empire for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 107.86 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
