Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Federal Socialist Republic of Deltaraya is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by General Secretary Vladimir Storozhin with an iron fist, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, strictly enforced bedtime, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.342 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 prioritizes Defense, although Education, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vybobodny. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 92.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Deltarayan economy, worth 256 trillion Koins 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. 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 190,833 Koins, with the richest citizens earning 7.7 times as much as the poorest.

Vile black smog from coal power plants has enveloped several major urban centres, the government is known to care more about its buildings than its people, the country has been 'going shopping' by annexing nearby nations for their resources, and science labs across the country languish in cobwebs as the government turns its attentions to spiritual matters. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Deltaraya's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Deltaraya is ranked 173,834th in the world and 8,124th in the South Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 29.65 Years.
