The Sultanate of Ar-Rayyan is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by His Majesty Sultan Azhar Muhammad with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and spontaneously combusting cars. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 13.473 billion Ar-Rayyanis are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The enormous, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Daltar Square. The average income tax rate is 95.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Ar-Rayyani economy, worth a remarkable 1,784 trillion Dollars a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 132,451 Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 403,384 per year while the poor average 33,753, a ratio of 12.0 to 1.

The population's jaw muscles put sharks to shame, no one believes anything until it has been strenuously tested and peer-reviewed, swings are now more popular than see-saws in children's playgrounds, and disaster relief budgets are growing like wildfire. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ar-Rayyan's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Islam.

Ar-Rayyan is ranked 68,718th in the world and 18th in United Empire of Islam for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 63.33 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
