The Magical Spells of Ravanian is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Rowan Ravenclaw with an iron fist, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 16.275 billion Ravanians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ravania. The average income tax rate is 68.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Ravanian economy, worth 39.9 trillion Rings a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 2,448 Rings, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ravanian has designated Ravania as its capital city, Rowan Ravenclaw has just been declared ruler of Ravanian in an international press conference, and The Order of the Raven has been named as Ravanian's national religion. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ravanian's national animal is the raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is The Order of the Raven.

Ravanian is ranked 34,457th in the world and 1,385th in Osiris for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero valid endorsements.
