The Delmah Confederacy of The Ebony Republic is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The High Council with an iron fist, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, prohibition of alcohol, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 12.622 billion Confederates are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Esantaesi. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Confederate economy, worth a remarkable 5,015 trillion Credit Chips a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 397,342 Credit Chips, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Esantaesi Preparatory School for the Exceedingly Wealthy's basketball team is having a few off-years, one-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, hiding wrinkles with make-up is illegal, and male cubicle workers stand up every time a woman enters the room. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Ebony Republic's national animal is the Basilisk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is nothing.

The Ebony Republic is ranked 881st in the world and 1st in Hoshizora for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 100.04 Effective Tax Rate.
