The Tampa Bay Rays

Population3.224 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 iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, disturbing lack of elderly people, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 3.224 billion Tampa Bay Raysians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, 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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 73.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Tampa Bay Raysian economy, worth 399 trillion rubles a year, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 123,921 rubles, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 461,428 per year while the poor average 23,359, a ratio of 19.8 to 1.

Maxtopian Grass flags adorn every college dorm room, most foreigners can't name the leader of The Tampa Bay Rays, the impoverished sick hang around outside golf clubs to beg for funding for healthcare, and residents of ageing concrete tower blocks have vital renovation work stopped by Brutalism enthusiasts. 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 54,437th in the world and 2,464th in The North Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 2,997.37 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
