OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Protectorate of Raven Mail is a colossal, economically powerful nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 8.443 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, with Defense and Spirituality also on the agenda, while Healthcare and Welfare are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 11.9%.

The very strong Raven economy, worth 242 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 56th in International Democratic Union and 74,698th in the world for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 0 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
