The Democratic People's Republic of RAYTANGOLAND is a massive, safe nation, ruled by RAY TANGO with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, strictly enforced bedtime, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.591 billion RAYTANGOLANDians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.
The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of RAYTANGO CITY. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 77.6%.
The frighteningly efficient RAYTANGOLANDian economy, worth a remarkable 1,502 trillion RAYTANGOMARKS a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 327,344 RAYTANGOMARKS, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,553,145 per year while the poor average 40,714, a ratio of 38.1 to 1.
Universities are populated by the spawn of the upper classes, expats return home to a government devoid of social and environmental agencies, citizens are regularly arrested in queues for 'loitering', and phone taps are frequently carried out by the police. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. RAYTANGOLAND's national animal is the RAYTANGOWHALE, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is RAYTANGOISM.
