Rayskiy Sad

Population10.516 billion


The Queen's State of Rayskiy Sad is a gargantuan, orderly nation, remarkable for its complete lack of public education, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 10.516 billion Rayskiy Sadians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, pro-business, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Law & Order, although Defense and Industry are also considered important, while Welfare and Spirituality are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.0%.

The thriving Rayskiy Sadian economy, worth 518 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Gambling, and Soda Sales. Average income is 49,274 betales, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 240,617 per year while the poor average 5,801, a ratio of 41.5 to 1.

All tariffs have been abolished, military spending recently hit a new high, young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables, and the government is avowedly atheist. Crime is a serious problem, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. Rayskiy Sad's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Rayskiy Sad is ranked 100,615th in the world and 7th in Great Britain and Northern Ireland for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 1,481.23 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
