The Sultanate of Ar-Rayyan is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Sultan Muhammad Al-Azhar with an even hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working population of 7.89 billion Ar-Rayyanians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Defence, and Social Welfare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Al-Midan. The average income tax rate is 100%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Third party candidates are now gaining some representation in Parliament, the nation's diplomatic missives are now delivered via sniper rifle, the explosive fireball of the disintegrating space shuttle has devastated Cape Ar-Rayyan, and the government is funneling billions into Cape Ar-Rayyan following the shuttle crash. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ar-Rayyan's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Islam, and its currency is the Riyal.

Ar-Rayyan is ranked 3rd in United Empire of Islam and 2,308th in the world for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,182.5 Net Tourists per hour.
