The Anarcho-Communist Alliance of Duneraven is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, smutty television, and soft-spoken computers. The compassionate, democratic population of 717 million Dunravenians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yggdrassil. The average income tax rate is 82.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Dunravenian economy, worth 78.5 trillion planets a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 109,550 planets, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government theft from poor artists to give to rich allies has been dubbed the "reverse Robin Hood" policy, Dunravenian police have to pay out of their own pockets for bulletproof vests, residents of houses built on a foundation of wishful thinking are prone to an odd sinking feeling, and the nation is cleaning up after a national night of celebration left most people with headaches and dim memories (Duneraven has found 5 easter eggs). Crime is totally unknown. Duneraven's national animal is the dire raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Duneraven is ranked 30,897th in the world and 129th in Refugia for Most Income Equality, scoring 70.86 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
