The White Wolves of Ravania Lupa is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Rheinhard Ravenclaw with an iron fist, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 12.932 billion Ravania Lupans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lupadonia. The average income tax rate is 40.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ravania Lupan economy, worth a remarkable 1,454 trillion Claws a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 112,465 Claws, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Authorities are looking for a stool pigeon to rat out who is stealing food from pigeon toilets, students memorise knock-knock jokes for their mandatory twice-a-term Comedy Examinations, mandatory spouse selection pairs elderly apparatchiki with stunningly beautiful supermodels, and engineers ask liberal arts majors "Do you want fries with that?". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ravania Lupa'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 Lupa is ranked 18,291st in the world and 339th in the Rejected Realms for Most Devout, with 1,309.96 Prayers Per Hour.
