The Community of Raycasting is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its ban on automobiles, prohibition of alcohol, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, democratic population of 661 million Raycastians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 64.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Raycastingian economy, worth 47.3 trillion paperclips a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 71,535 paperclips, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, meat-eating is frowned upon, the government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters, and 10-year-olds who struggle with integrating by parts are considered slow learners. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Raycasting's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Raycasting is ranked 196,415th in the world and 5,450th in The North Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 23.6 billion Standard Monetary Units.
