The People's Republic of The Raymish Empire is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Chairman RRW with an even hand, and remarkable for its irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, intelligent population of 8.342 billion Raymishes 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 Defence, Education, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Raymish Command Bunker. 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.

The government is pursuing a new programme aimed at promoting cultural sophistication, military spending is on the increase, a new generation of aquariumless hotels are being built under government supervision, and reporters often lose their jobs over fact-checking errors. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Raymish Empire's national animal is the Killer Penguin, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the raymish credit.

The Raymish Empire is ranked 1st in Stargate and 449th in the world for Most Dedicated Public Healthcare, scoring 315 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
