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 notable for its keen interest in outer space, vat-grown people, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.038 billion Deltarayans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

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 are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vybobodny. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 92.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Deltarayan economy, worth 498 trillion Koins a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an amazing 244,357 Koins, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,066,141 per year while the poor average 35,390, a ratio of 30.1 to 1.

The family summer vacation has become a thing of the past following the introduction of the year-round school year, 90% of active duty DAF personnel have been laid off and replaced by robot kill-drones, Eagle populations thrive as dogs are slaughtered in the millions, and children often explain to their parents that the Mega Ultimate Sword Fist was worth the thousand-Koin charge on their phone bill. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course.

Deltaraya is ranked 883rd in the world and 15th in the South Pacific for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 46,111.03 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
