Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Queendom of Rowan I of Ravania Prima is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Princess Rowan I with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ritual sacrifices, zero percent divorce rate, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.632 billion Ravania Primen have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rowan's Glory. The average income tax rate is 87.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ravania Priman economy, worth a remarkable 1,074 trillion Primas a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 140,753 Primas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Underage drinkers are dragged through the streets and put in the stocks, all beauty contests have been banned, suit-clad businessmen have been taking advantage of the relaxed welfare qualifications by shopping with food stamps, and citizens are encouraged to report friends, family members or co-workers who seem depressed to the government for "counselling". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ravania Prima's national animal is the Raven, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities, and its national religion is The Order of the Hexes.

Ravania Prima is ranked 2nd in Ravania and 121,748th in the world for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -3 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
