The Extrasensory Perception of Delta-Vega is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Gary Mitchell with an iron fist, and remarkable for its deadly medical pandemics, keen interest in outer space, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.403 billion Delta-Vegans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Lithium-Cracking Station. The average income tax rate is 45.1%.

The large but inefficient Delta-Vegan economy, worth 111 trillion Federation Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 46,494 Federation Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

It is illegal to liberate slaves, deli patrons examine their roast beef for undetonated explosives, it is mandatory to learn evolution in schools, and suspicious glow-in-the-dark wasps remain a source of terror and awe. Crime is well under control, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Delta-Vega's national animal is the Human, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Delta-Vega is ranked 52,516th in the world and 57th in United Earth Space Probe Agency for Most Secular, with 25.78 Atheism Rate.
