Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Protectorate of Raven Mail is a colossal, efficient nation, notable for its compulsory military service and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 9.413 billion Ravens are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, pro-business government is primarily concerned with Law & Order, although Defense and Spirituality are also considered important, while Healthcare and Welfare aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 11.9%.

The very strong Raven economy, worth 270 trillion thalers a year, is quite specialized and led by the Furniture Restoration industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Woodchip Exports, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 28,687 thalers, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 87,634 per year while the poor average 7,278, a ratio of 12.0 to 1.

Citizens select which government department gets their income tax thalers each year, voting is voluntary, the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, and corporations donate huge sums of money to favored politicians. Crime is a problem. Raven Mail's national animal is the bunny, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Raven Mail is ranked 55th in International Democratic Union and 74,711th in the world for Best Weather, with -1 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
