The Republic of Rainism is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 886 million Rainismians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cloud City. The average income tax rate is 58.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rainismian economy, worth 78.2 trillion Coins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 88,255 Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Immigrants who carry knives on them are presumed to be chefs, tax-payers are funding ever more extravagant movie projects, there's never a spare chair in the retirement home, and shopkeepers use microscopes to verify the authenticity of banknotes. Crime is totally unknown. Rainism's national animal is the Raccoon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Rainism is ranked 186,965th in the world and 87th in The Free Nations Region for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.77 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
