The People's Republic of The Raymish Empire is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Chairman RRW with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, intelligent population of 8.3 billion Raymishes are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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.

Third party candidates are now gaining some representation in Parliament, organ donation is compulsory, the nationalized auto industry is adept at making durable little cars nobody wants to drive, and prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators. 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 45th in Stargate and 112,467th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -28 on the Hayek Index.
