The Regional Defense Council of Raykjaholar is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, enslaved workforce, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.072 billion Raykjaholarians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Law & Order, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 24.8%.

The all-consuming Raykjaholarian economy, worth 80.1 trillion Reich's Marks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 74,766 Reich's Marks, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 480,683 per year while the poor average 4,718, a ratio of 101 to 1.

Lending money has become a major liability, denied drugs and entertainment the nation's youth are taking to petty crime to alleviate their boredom, many are questioning Leader wearing an Eckie-Ecola baseball cap during a keynote speech, and napalm is the tool of choice for disabling eco-unfriendly forestry operations. Crime is a problem, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. Raykjaholar's national animal is the Whale, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Raykjaholar is ranked 30,696th in the world and 1st in Raykjaholar for Highest Crime Rates, with 14.78 Crimes Per Hour.
