Location: The Invaders

Regional Influence: Dominator


The Invasion of Rain Delay is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Queen Rose with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and daily referendums. The humorless, devout population of 19.248 billion Roseians 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, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Invader Camp. The average income tax rate is 48.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rain Delayian economy, worth a remarkable 4,749 trillion Raids a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 246,755 Raids, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Looting and pillaging are now considered vital intelligence-gathering activities, father-son fishing trips have been banned, the armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists, and extraordinary tribunals try accused financial criminals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rain Delay's national animal is the Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Branch Davidian.

Rain Delay is ranked 143,891st in the world and 145th in The Invaders for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.71 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
