The Religious Stronghold of Afrayn is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Pedío Lamprós with an iron fist, and remarkable for its suspicion of poets, complete absence of social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.276 billion Afraynians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Callinth. The average income tax rate is 94.4%.

The strong Afraynian economy, worth 156 trillion goats a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 122,803 goats, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.

Families returning from international vacations are unable to get their children back into the country, neighbourhood gossips whip up controversy about those receiving adult merchandise, getting an autograph has become harder than ever, and the government maintains that belief brings greater security than money or a roof. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Afrayn's national animal is the Sparrow, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Pedíonism.

Afrayn is ranked 3,494th in the world and 3rd in Caer Sidi for Best Weather, with 361 Meters Of Sunlight.
