The Delmah Confederacy of The Ebony Republic is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The High Council with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, vat-grown people, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 13.868 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, with Education, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Esantaesi. The average income tax rate is 99.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Confederate economy, worth a remarkable 5,479 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 395,116 Credit Chips, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Most foreigners can't name the leader of The Ebony Republic, people's charity begins and ends at home, parents are relieved they no longer need to help with their kids' algebra homework, and frisbee games on college quadrangles are grounds for expulsion. 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 187,053rd in the world and 13th in Hoshizora for Highest Drug Use, scoring 33.8 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
