The Morning Star of Ravania Morgana is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Rhonda Ravenclaw IV with an iron fist, and remarkable for its strong anti-business policies. Its hard-nosed, cynical population of 5.008 billion 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Defence, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Morgana Sky. The average income tax rate is 49%, but much higher for the wealthy. Private enterprise is illegal, but for those in the know there is a slick and highly efficient black market in Tourism.

The recently unemployed can often be seen at the local homeless shelter, a ban on unsolicited cold calling in all forms is in effect, the government is outsourcing itself, and pollsters are out of a job as elections have been cancelled. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ravania Morgana's national animal is the Raven, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is The Circle of the Raven, and its currency is the Claw.

Ravania Morgana is ranked 15th in Launching Point and 44,159th in the world for Highest Police Ratios, scoring 31 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
