Honesty, politeness, and respect for other people are characteristics of a decent person.

Decency has historically been associated with manners, but today it primarily refers to a strong moral compass and a high bar for honesty. People presume criminals and dictators lack morality when they commit atrocious acts. Some people question if society has lost its sense of decency when a violent or offensive TV show gets popular. A serious inquiry is "Have you no decency?" unless the person is being stupid and complains about things like schoolwork.
Decency entails frugality and effectiveness.
