The VC Republic State of Free Ravensburg is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, frequent executions, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 592 million 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 Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ravensburg Richtig. The average income tax rate is 47.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The Free Ravenian economy, worth 33.6 trillion silvans a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 56,736 silvans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Five-year-olds chanting "Little Miss Muffet" are accused of bullying arachnophobes, roosters that herald the rising sun are immediately sent to the slaughterhouse, ships no longer sail as no one wants to encounter Free Ravenian pirates, and confused-looking pigeons slide gently off frictionless window ledges. 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.
