The Invasion of Rain Delay is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Queen Rose with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and disturbing lack of elderly people. The humorless, devout population of 19.474 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 Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Invader Camp. The average income tax rate is 52.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rain Delayian economy, worth a remarkable 4,905 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 reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 251,883 Raids, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

The government mails weekly updates on the new anti-junk mail laws to every citizen, sex changes are routinely performed at Rain Delay's hospitals, policemen regularly conduct midnight raids on closed donut shops to 'collect evidence', and the nation's youth would rather watch paint dry than the news. 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 18,214th in the world and 16th in The Invaders for Most Developed, scoring 84.27 on the Human Development Index.
