The Invasion of Rain Delay is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Queen Rose with an even hand, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The humorless, devout population of 19.255 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 48.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rain Delayian economy, worth a remarkable 4,755 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 246,984 Raids, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Stony-faced prosecutors play loud gangster rap music during court proceedings, directors of low-budget sci-fi films are flocking to use Invader Camp as a backdrop, barbed wire entanglements and guard towers surround the Invader Camp Natural History Museum, and exports are stamped with "made by the invisible hand you commies". 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 10,118th in the world and 14th in The Invaders for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 7,536.38 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
