The Tomatoship of New Delfos is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Council of New Delfos with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, anti-smoking policies, and soft-spoken computers. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 29.206 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 primarily concerned with Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Social Policy are also considered important, 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 37.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Delfosian economy, worth a remarkable 4,597 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 157,426 tomatoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Counselors have to sign pledges supporting gay rights before they can speak to any patients, the reams of paperwork accompanying any electronic item are a recognised contributor to national deforestation, crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters, and kindergartners' favourite dance move is the stop-drop-and-roll. 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 2,624th in the world and 4th in Taijitu for Most Beautiful Environments, with 3,014.6 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
