The CID WA Puppet of UNDelegate is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by CID with an even hand, and notable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, triple-decker prams, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 16.804 billion CIDians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint-CID. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.3%.

The frighteningly efficient CIDian economy, worth a remarkable 3,343 trillion Golden Shares a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 198,969 Golden Shares, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 706,781 per year while the poor average 40,365, a ratio of 17.5 to 1.

Referenda are held for every conceivable government action, a weakened police force struggles to maintain law and order, the sound of office water cooler chatter has been replaced by the whirring of computer cooling fans, and women tell their friends they've been on crash diets rather than admit they were pregnant and have had terminations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. UNDelegate's national animal is the Prancing Horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Roman Catholic Church.

UNDelegate is ranked 115,253rd in the world and 162nd in Capitalist Paradise for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.01 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
