The Lakelands of Rayo is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Lucille Delgado with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.6 billion Rayoans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Crystarium. The average income tax rate is 65.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Rayoan economy, worth 121 trillion rupees a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 46,600 rupees, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People are more interested in gossip about the private lives of politicians than their policies, the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, one does not simply walk into the tundra, and social media sites prompt users to send birthday greetings to unresponsive nonagenarians. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rayo's national animal is the hedgehog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Hydaelyn.

Rayo is ranked 204,494th in the world and 142nd in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -5.86 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
