The WatchGuard of Ravea is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, daily referendums, and vat-grown people. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 17.451 billion Raveans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Social Policy. The average income tax rate is 75.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ravean economy, worth a remarkable 2,091 trillion Gold Pieces a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 119,824 Gold Pieces, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cars are banned from built-up areas, all government facilities are built in the subterranean citadel of Ravea City, even the most lowly council pen-pusher has the same political power as a senior minister, and mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field. Crime is almost non-existent. Ravea's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Derpanity.

Ravea is ranked 232,027th in the world and 7,588th in Balder for Most Secular, with 8.92 Atheism Rate.
