The Eternal Flame of Ravania Aeterna is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Roger Ravenclaw II with an iron fist, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 19.485 billion Ravania Aeternans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Industry, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Environment and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eternal Flame. The average income tax rate is 67.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ravania Aeternan economy, worth a remarkable 2,138 trillion Claws a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 109,772 Claws, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, a fashion designer has been arrested for inciting hatred after claiming redheads couldn't pull off vermillion, the nation is committed to nuclear rearmament, and government buildings are being cleansed for anything that might have racist connotations. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ravania Aeterna's national animal is the Raven, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is The Circle of the Raven.

Ravania Aeterna is ranked 250,497th in the world and 2,910th in Artificial Solar System for Most Extreme, scoring 9.55 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
