Deika is a city in the mountains, so entrance and exit routes are limited and can easily be manipulated by the army. Its described as a city surrounded by nature, the perfect place for the liberation army to hide. 
Deika's central tower was the base of operations for Re-Destro and the Liberation Army. It was where they held Giran hostage before the tower was disintegrated by Tomura Shigaraki.
- Deika contains the kanji dei (泥? lit. "mud") and ka (花? lit. "flower") put together means "muddy flower".
- If the kanji is reversed (花泥) they start the saying "it's no crime to steal flowers".
