The Tomatoship of New Delfos is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Council of New Delfos with a fair hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, anti-smoking policies, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 31.613 billion Delfics hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Delfingrad. The average income tax rate is 48.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Delfosian economy, worth a remarkable 5,053 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, and Tourism. 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 159,866 tomatoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians "baring all" for the camera isn't always a figure of speech, sea side cafes are required by law to close during summer, feuilletons can only be deciphered with a Galliennais dictionary, and nude art is becoming wildly popular. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, 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 239,004th in the world and 31st in Taijitu for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.42 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
