OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Protectorate of Raven Mail is a colossal, economically powerful nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 7.721 billion Ravens are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny government is mainly concerned with Law & Order, although Defence and Religion & Spirituality are on the agenda. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 11%. A small but healthy private sector is dominated by the Furniture Restoration industry.

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 serious problem. Raven Mail's national animal is the bunny, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its currency is the thaler.

Raven Mail is ranked 61st in International Democratic Union and 77,573rd in the world for Most Godforsaken, with 9 Dawkins.
