OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The People's Republic of The Raymish Empire is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Chairman RRW with an even hand, and notable for its strong anti-business policies. The compassionate, intelligent population of 8.062 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.

Students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, parents must choose their children's names from a government-mandated master list, the studies of art and philosophy are banned, and airship use has soared while property values beneath their routes have plummeted. 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 46th in Stargate and 112,172nd in the world for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -9 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
