The Cloud of Rain is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Rainman with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, enforced nudity, and punitive income tax rates. The democratic population of 14.552 billion Rainians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rain City. The average income tax rate is 79.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Rainian economy, worth 296 trillion Rains a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 20,371 Rains, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Rain has designated Rain City as its capital city, Rainman has just been declared ruler of Rain in an international press conference, trout are considered a delicacy, and conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rain's national animal is the trout, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Cloudism.

Rain is ranked 128,835th in the world and 16th in Asia for Most Armed, with 0.23 Weapons Per Person.
