The Kingdom of Rayekka is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by King Robb Mormont with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 6.038 billion Rayekkans 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Barnes. The average income tax rate is 75.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Rayekkan economy, worth 294 trillion Barbexes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 48,823 Barbexes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Workers tend to schedule naps during all-hands meetings, there have been reports of people marrying housepets, rumor has it that King Robb Mormont has won three lotteries in a row, and colonists who were promised new lands find only war-torn devastation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rayekka's national animal is the Squirrel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Rayekka is ranked 35,902nd in the world and 80th in Thaecia for Largest Governments, scoring 20.74 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
