The Matriarchy of Ravendra is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lucia Barry with an even hand, and remarkable for its lack of airports, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 6.541 billion Ravendrans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Waimeia. The average income tax rate is 89.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Ravendran economy, worth 529 trillion Vens a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 80,910 Vens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Park rangers struggle to deal with a rash of stolen pic-a-nic baskets, the regional delicacy of chocolate bombes is deadlier than an unexploded bomb, peace talks occasionally rack up a higher body count than the wars they seek to stop, and pharmaceutical companies emphatically promise that "your pills are in the mail" rather than admit any supply shortfall. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ravendra's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Ravendra is ranked 42,360th in the world and 1,453rd in Osiris for Most Income Equality, scoring 50.67 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
