The Tomatoship of New Delfos is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, rampant corporate plagiarism, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 22.169 billion Delfics hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government is dominated by the Department of Education, although Environment, Social Policy, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Delfingrad. The average income tax rate is 5.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Delfosian economy, worth a remarkable 3,110 trillion tomatoes a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 140,311 tomatoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

In life full of care there is no time to stop and stare, the best way to be heard in politics is to speak softly and carry a big comedy prop, Big Red Tomato owners exercise their pets at a snail's pace or risk prosecution, and the nation grinds to a halt on the anniversary of every marginally noteworthy event. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. New Delfos's national animal is the Big Red Tomato, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

New Delfos is ranked 2,449th in the world and 8th in Taijitu for Smartest Citizens, with 146.5 Quips Per Hour.
