Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Federal Socialist Republic of Deltaraya is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by General Secretary Vladimir Storozhin with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, zero percent divorce rate, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.517 billion Deltarayans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Environment and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vybobodny. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 90.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Deltarayan economy, worth 315 trillion Koins a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an amazing 208,197 Koins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 636,001 per year while the poor average 52,826, a ratio of 12.0 to 1.

Maintaining economic growth is no laughing matter, EpiPen sales have skyrocketed, the nation's new religious police burn blasphemers on bonfires of their own books, and mining is the nation's most dangerous occupation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Deltaraya's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Deltaraya is ranked 173,942nd in the world and 8,482nd in the South Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -251.3 on the Hayek Index.
