The Sultanate of Ar-Rayyan is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Sultan Muhammad Al-Azhar with an even hand, and renowned for its hatred of cheese. The compassionate, hard-working population of 7.712 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 99%. 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.

Popular political cartoonists are thrown in jail for inciting dissent, marijuana is legal in the privacy of your own home, the nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields, and a fashion designer has been arrested for inciting hatred after claiming redheads couldn't pull off vermillion. 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 2nd in United Empire of Islam and 735th in the world for Best Weather, with 499 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
