The Protectorate of Raven Mail is a gargantuan, efficient nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 14.94 billion Ravens are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The medium-sized, pro-business government prioritizes Law & Order, although Spirituality and Defense are also considered important, while Welfare and Healthcare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Central Roost. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 13.6%.

The very strong Raven economy, worth 433 trillion golden thalers a year, is quite specialized and led by the Furniture Restoration industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Woodchip Exports, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 29,044 golden thalers, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 88,725 per year while the poor average 7,369, a ratio of 12.0 to 1.

Corporations donate huge sums of money to favored politicians, Raven Mail has designated Central Roost as its capital city, the Federal Council of Raven Mail has been announced as the new Head of State, and GreatRaven-ism has been named as Raven Mail's national religion. Crime is a problem. Raven Mail's national animal is the bunny, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is GreatRaven-ism.

Raven Mail is ranked 24,746th in the world and 23rd in International Democratic Union for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 5,594.53 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
