Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Soviet Socialist Federation of Deltaraya is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by General Secretary Vladimir Storozhin with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, compulsory military service, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 983 million 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 enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vybobodny. The average income tax rate is 93.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Deltarayan economy, worth 139 trillion Koins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 141,649 Koins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Religious bigotry and a fear of outsiders have replaced religious studies in schools, elections have been outlawed, elections are outlawed and a hairstylist has recently received a government appointment, and democratic debates have been removed from the government. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Deltaraya's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Deltaraya is ranked 154,840th in the world and 7,528th in the South Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -7.21 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
