The Empire of Rayaansville is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Muhammad IV with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, keen interest in outer space, and national health service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.316 billion Rayaansvillians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Defenestration City. The average income tax rate is 62.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Rayaansvillean economy, worth 162 trillion Rayaansvillian Rupees a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 123,556 Rayaansvillian Rupees, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Bicycle parking sheds have sprouted like mushrooms near rail stations after cars were banned, the nation's WA representatives have received a very public sacking after Rayaansville allowed its WA membership to lapse, the nation's weary schoolchildren excel at sport but must count scores on their fingers, and political cartoons depicting Muhammad IV's face on a Rayaansvillian Wolf's buttocks are selling like hotcakes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rayaansville's national animal is the Rayaansvillian Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Defenestrasionism.

Rayaansville is ranked 27,023rd in the world and 3rd in Seora for Largest Governments, scoring 23.37 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
