The Queendom of Rowan I of Ravania Prima is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Princess Rowan I with an iron fist, and notable for its ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 6.315 billion Ravania Primen are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Education, although Defence and Commerce are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rowan's Glory. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 89%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

The government seizes the property of the recently deceased, the Raven is protected from hunting and slowly coming back from the brink of extinction, teachers regularly paddle unruly students, and the government seizes all major gold finds. 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 108,561st in the world for Most Cultured, scoring -16 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
