The VC Republic State of Free Ravensburg is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Amadeus Freidrich with an even hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, frequent executions, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, devout population of 1.346 billion Ravenians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ravensburg Richtig. The average income tax rate is 52.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The Free Ravenian economy, worth 84.4 trillion silvans a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 62,729 silvans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, years of counter-terrorism planning are foiled by small details, there has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates, and insanely good theatre productions face government censorship. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Free Ravensburg's national animal is the raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Referencism.
