The Absurd Memory of Ravendi is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Fern Coptrai with an even hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, frequent executions, and vat-grown people. The compassionate population of 2.741 billion Ravendians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kalkutis. The average income tax rate is 98.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Ravendian economy, worth 522 trillion Ranars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 190,442 Ranars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Party leaders rely on horoscopes to create "ticket balance", drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking, the aphorism "there's no need to argue" has been dismissed by Ravendians, and hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ravendi's national animal is the Muskrat, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Ravendi is ranked 168,807th in the world and 6,258th in The East Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 3.44 Obesity Rate.
