The Peaceable Republic of RayeStan is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Ryan Banker with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, keen interest in outer space, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.855 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, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rayestania. The average income tax rate is 81.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient RayeStanian economy, worth 533 trillion Rayeons a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 138,389 Rayeons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Dreams of entering the Super League have been relegated to the history books, builders across RayeStan are blocked up with orders for new public loos, Max Barry is this year's Miss RayeStan, and children's daycare starts at the crack of dawn. 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 245,905th in the world and 275th in The Free Nations Region for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.98 crimes per hour.
