The Tampa Bay Rays

Population4.879 billion

CapitalTropicana Field
LeaderStuart Sternberg


The Poor Team of The Tampa Bay Rays is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Stuart Sternberg with an even hand, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 4.879 billion Tampa Bay Raysians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tropicana Field. The average income tax rate is 78.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Tampa Bay Raysian economy, worth 566 trillion rubles a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 116,095 rubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Years of counter-terrorism planning are foiled by small details, rumor has it that the government was paid off by the mob to allow casinos to reopen, pro-life activists often lecture pregnant women undergoing routine prenatal screening, and there are no minimum wage laws. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Tampa Bay Rays's national animal is the Ray, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Baseball.

The Tampa Bay Rays is ranked 21,221st in the world and 1,145th in The North Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 1,022.56 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
