The United Republic of Delaclava is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Joseph Urso with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ubiquitous missile silos, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 11.268 billion Delaclavs enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal government is primarily concerned with Education, although Healthcare, Law & Order, and Defense are also considered important, while Spirituality and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Catherina. The average income tax rate is 3.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Delaclav economy, worth a remarkable 2,223 trillion Karsikas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 197,319 Karsikas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Power stations shutting down at night has made bedtime reading tricky, grocery stores can be audibly identified by the giggling emerging from them, a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park, and school kids who pretend to drive imaginary cars get a social worker and a police observer assigned to them. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Delaclava's national animal is the phoenix, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Delaclava is ranked 204,324th in the world and 191st in Atlantian Oceania for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -21.45 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
