|Leader||The Council of New Delfos|
|Animal||Big Red Tomato|
The Tomatoship of New Delfos is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Council of New Delfos with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and digital currency. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 33.429 billion Delfics are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Delfingrad. The average income tax rate is 52.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient New Delfosian economy, worth a remarkable 5,481 trillion tomatoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, highly specialized black market in Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 163,981 tomatoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The New Delfos Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, films are funded in accordance with the volume of tears shed when reading the screenplay, sex changes are routinely performed at New Delfos's hospitals, and election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. New Delfos's national animal is the Big Red Tomato, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
New Delfos is ranked 72,826th in the world and 15th in Taijitu for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 52.86 Effective Tax Rate.
