The Peaceable Republic of RayeStan is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Josh Frankster with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, smutty television, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.247 billion RayeStanians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rayestania. The average income tax rate is 90.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient RayeStanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,133 trillion Rayeons a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 156,458 Rayeons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Disaster relief budgets are growing like wildfire, Josh Frankster's new door-knocking campaign has the sweet taste of success, evenings at university debating societies often end with everyone acknowledging both sides may well be right, and 3D printed organs are a breath of new life for the sick and elderly. Crime is totally unknown. RayeStan's national animal is the Hummingbird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Raya.

RayeStan is ranked 8,106th in the world and 18th in The Free Nations Region for Best Weather, with 256 meters of sunlight.
