Delvanos I

Population407 million


The Dictatorship of Delvanos I is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, zero percent divorce rate, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 407 million Delvanovians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 42.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Delvanovian economy, worth 19.5 trillion Tyreses a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Uranium Mining, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 47,809 Tyreses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Government-run brothels can be found on every street corner, wedding bands come in pairs to form wedding manacles, interviewees for teaching jobs are waterboarded to "reveal undesirable histories", and the institution of marriage is held sacred and strictly enforced. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Delvanos I's national animal is the Mosquito, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Delvanos I is ranked 198,843rd in the world and 3rd in Confederation of the Mediterranean for Best Weather, with 70 Meters Of Sunlight.
