The Ravanian Outpost of North Wayland is a massive, devout nation, ruled by Rainer Ravenclaw with a fair hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-working, intelligent population of 4.208 billion North Waylandians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Social Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 21%. A healthy private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Pizza Delivery and Retail.

Voting is voluntary, The Order of the Raven has been named as North Wayland's national religion, public nudity is compulsory, and Rainer Ravenclaw has just been declared ruler of North Wayland in an international press conference. Crime is moderate, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. North Wayland's national animal is the squirrel, its national religion is The Order of the Raven, and its currency is the Way.

North Wayland is ranked 30th in Eggplant City and 87,221st in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring 4 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
