The Non Channel Synapses of Brain Delay is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its pith helmet sales, prohibition of alcohol, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.559 billion Brain Delayians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 52.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Brain Delayian economy, worth 66.2 trillion delays a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 42,440 delays, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Weathermen are being arrested for attempting to read the future, major corporations receive tax breaks for no apparent reason, Leader is considering changing the Brain Delayian flag to one with more glitter, and students are wary of colorfully decorated new teachers with names like Professor Pipsqueak. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Brain Delay's national animal is the brain, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Brain Delay is ranked 125,372nd in the world and 1,864th in the South Pacific for Largest Populations, with 1.56 billion Capita.
