The Queendom of Rowan I of Ravania Prima is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Princess Rowan I with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 6.838 billion Ravania Primen are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

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 Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rowan's Glory. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 88%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

Fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, skateboarding is punishable by heavy fines, a cyber-war between file sharers and the music industry formats hard drives across the country, and builders spend more time negotiating "tasteful architecture" than on actual construction. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ravania Prima's national animal is the Raven, its national religion is The Order of the Hexes, and its currency is the Prima.

Ravania Prima is ranked 2nd in Ravania and 92,353rd in the world for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 34 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
