The New Delphi Compact is described as incorporating twelve inhabited worlds spread across ten systems as at 3095, and appears to have remained stable at this level for four centuries;
In common with the other worlds of the New Delphi Compact, ninety percent of the population of Halkidik lived an agricultural lifestyle maintained by technology of an equivalent to that found on Terra in the late eighteenth or early nineteenth century, a consequence of the heavy influence of the Omniss philosophy within the Compact. For the majority of the population, exposure to more advanced technology was limited to some pest control technology and power generators, and it was unlikely they would ever travel further than fifty kilometers from where they were born; for a minority of the population, working in the fields of medicine, government or in space, more advanced technology was available, broadly comparable to Inner Sphere technology of a twenty-sixth century level. Lacking access to HPG technology, communication from outside Halkidik was only possible via JumpShip
In common with all of the other worlds within the Compact, the family of extremely dangerous and aggressive viruses known collectively as the Delphi Curse was an active presence in the system, and despite the centuries-long efforts of the Delphian Virus Research and Immunization Institute (VRII) the Curse continued to prove fatal to approximately ten percent of the Halkidikns who contracted it - although this mortality rate was dramatically lower than the eighty to ninety percent mortality rate amongst those from outside the Compact who were exposed.
