The Kingdom of Rayekka is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by King Robb Mormont with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, cynical population of 2.381 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 large, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Barnes. The average income tax rate is 56.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Rayekkan economy, worth 33.0 trillion Barbexes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 13,863 Barbexes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sullen teenagers in bright orange 'community payback' onesies can be seen picking litter at the roadside, both diets and economic output are growing leaner with recent restrictions to free trade, the government regularly reassures citizens that there are no monsters under their beds, and a spate of enforced closures has left 'Government FM' as the nation's only radio station. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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 21,094th in the world and 64th in Thaecia for Most Pacifist, with 118.46 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
