The Invasion of Rain Delay is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Queen Rose with an even hand, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, avowedly heterosexual populace, and compulsory gun ownership. The compassionate, humorless, devout population of 22.004 billion Roseians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Invader Camp. The average income tax rate is 57.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rain Delayian economy, worth a remarkable 6,400 trillion Raids a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 290,881 Raids, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, citizens are forced to donate blood once every three months, citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Rain Delay, and internet moderators work overtime to remove memes comparing Queen Rose to cartoon bears. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rain Delay's national animal is the Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Branch Davidian.

Rain Delay is ranked 266,979th in the world and 329th in The Invaders for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -29.43 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
