Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Proletarian Dictatorship of Deltaraya is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by General Secretary Vladimir Storozhin with an iron fist, and renowned for its closed borders, pith helmet sales, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.157 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 juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vybobodny. The average income tax rate is 92.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Deltarayan economy, worth 196 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 a large, well-organized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Uranium Mining. 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 169,446 Koins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Meat prices are soaring as the farming industry struggle under government imposed restrictions, holidaymakers sleep curled up on the floor as hotel beds are replaced with oversized bookcases, dynamite sales and concert audiences are booming, and blind dates tend to result in bruised shins. 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 soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Deltaraya is ranked 158,228th in the world and 7,778th in the South Pacific for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -8.49 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
