Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Delicate Sound of Thunder of The Gates of Delirium is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Westwind with an iron fist, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, digital currency, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 18.897 billion Delirians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Path of Glory. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 65.6%.

The powerhouse The Gates of Delirian economy, worth a remarkable 1,492 trillion Fugits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 78,969 Fugits, with the richest citizens earning 9.8 times as much as the poorest.

All transmission towers have been temporarily diverted in order to establish dialogue with a comet, Westwind is worshipped as a god, oracles predict landslide victories for Westwind for the next 50 years, and chemically brainwashed citizens praise Westwind's name on an hourly basis. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Gates of Delirium's national animal is the Coiled Snake, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Church of Westwind.

The Gates of Delirium is ranked 34,849th in the world and 31st in Equilism for Most Devout, with 810 Prayers Per Hour.
