The Lakelands of Rayo is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Lucille Delgado with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.169 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 65.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Rayoan economy, worth 154 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 48,843 rupees, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Social networking sites have discussion groups devoted to planning terrorist attacks, nouveau riche farmers diligently take care of their golden calf herds, airport announcements inform passengers that flights have been delayed because pilots are having afternoon naps, and corporations are forbidden from employing outside the nation. 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 48,048th in the world and 104th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 2.99 Bank.
