The Queendom of Rowan I of Ravania Prima is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Princess Rowan I with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, flagrant waste-dumping, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 13.96 billion Ravania Primen have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rowan's Glory. The average income tax rate is 59.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ravania Priman economy, worth a remarkable 2,105 trillion Primas a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 150,814 Primas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Harry Potter books are banned, programmes of questionable content are shown at peak-hours, prime real estate is devoted to wind farms and solar energy generators, and space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ravania Prima's national animal is the Raven, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is The Order of the Hexes.

Ravania Prima is ranked 59,946th in the world and 1st in Ravania for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 1,909.44 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
