The Tomatoship of New Delfos is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Council of New Delfos with a fair hand, and renowned for its digital currency, state-planned economy, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 26.572 billion Delfics are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government is dominated by the Department of Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Delfingrad. The average income tax rate is 19.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Delfosian economy, worth a remarkable 4,108 trillion tomatoes 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 slick, highly efficient, highly specialized black market in Book Publishing, Information Technology, Tourism, and Cheese 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 154,619 tomatoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

They say that Delfics made a dessert and called it peace, being The Council of New Delfos has been voted one of the top ten most dangerous jobs, turning the other cheek is accompanied by a polite letter of complaint, and voting is voluntary. Crime, especially youth-related, is 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 3,426th in the world and 5th in Taijitu for Most Developed, scoring 95.43 on the Human Development Index.
