Why can’t I delete the uncategorized Category?

Deleting a category does not delete the posts in that category. Instead, posts that were only assigned to the deleted category are set to the uncategorized category. Also, all Pages are assigned the uncategorized Category.

The uncategorized category cannot be deleted, however you can specify your default categories for posts on the Settings – Writing screen of the Administration Screens.
