The Tampa Bay Rays

LeaderStuart Sternberg


The Team of The Tampa Bay Rays is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Stuart Sternberg with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, zero percent divorce rate, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 9.561 billion Tampa Bay Raysians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The medium-sized, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tropicana Field. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 71.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Tampa Bay Raysian economy, worth a remarkable 1,655 trillion rubles a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 173,149 rubles, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,049,247 per year while the poor average 12,749, a ratio of 82.3 to 1.

The most commonly-worn shoes are concrete ones, the government spends twice as much reclaiming lost settlements from the sea as it could've on coastal defences, exiled racists are enjoying their retirement in exotic lands, and soylent products are an expensive commodity due to a lack of volunteers. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The Tampa Bay Rays's national animal is the Ray, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Baseball.

The Tampa Bay Rays is ranked 4,629th in the world and 148th in The North Pacific for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 38,325.67 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
