The Poor Team of The Tampa Bay Rays is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Stuart Sternberg with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, absence of drug laws, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 3.248 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 73.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Tampa Bay Raysian economy, worth 404 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. Average income is an impressive 124,441 rubles, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 463,367 per year while the poor average 23,457, a ratio of 19.8 to 1.

The impoverished sick hang around outside golf clubs to beg for funding for healthcare, residents of ageing concrete tower blocks have vital renovation work stopped by Brutalism enthusiasts, citizens are arrested for naturally producing proteins, and firebombing politicians' offices has become a common way of expressing dissatisfaction. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a 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 72,833rd in the world and 3,659th in The North Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 51.11 on the Rand Index.
