The Tampa Bay Rays

Population3.685 billion

CapitalTropicana Field
LeaderStuart Sternberg


The Poor Team of The Tampa Bay Rays is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Stuart Sternberg with an even hand, and renowned for its disturbing lack of elderly people, zero percent divorce rate, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 3.685 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 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 74.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Tampa Bay Raysian economy, worth 454 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 rampant. Average income is an impressive 123,293 rubles, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 512,317 per year while the poor average 19,424, a ratio of 26.4 to 1.

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 217th in the world and 59th in The North Pacific for Most Influential, scoring 230,638 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
