The Matriarchy of Rayo is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Lucille Delgado with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, national health service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.073 billion Rayoans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Besaid. The average income tax rate is 76.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Rayoan economy, worth 48.3 trillion rupees a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 45,057 rupees, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is promoting multicultural values with the new 'Just Be Nice, OK?' initiative, Lucille Delgado's peyote-induced "let's all just be friends" speech is trending world-wide, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, and the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rayo's national animal is the hedgehog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Hydaelynism.

Rayo is ranked 168,463rd in the world and 168th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 678.91 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
