The Republic of Rayand is a huge, safe nation, notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 382 million Rayandeses are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gustavia. The average income tax rate is 68.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Rayandian economy, worth 33.6 trillion Gustavoes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 88,011 Gustavoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Weird kids who eat bugs are breaking the law, playing an online nation simulation game legally obliges you to buy the creator's latest novel, the government recently donated a surfboard to an impoverished family in a landlocked region, and roadside walls are being built and mother nature is paying for it. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rayand's national animal is the Raphick, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Rayand is ranked 211,418th in the world and 18th in InfAxes Region for Largest Black Market, with 9.20 billion Standard Monetary Units.
