The Republic of Ravenstryde is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 465 million Ravenstrydeans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Branwen. The average income tax rate is 43.4%.

The strong Ravenstrydean economy, worth 22.3 trillion florins a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 47,891 florins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

School uniforms are compulsory, conspiracy theorists allege that the government is spying on them through their carbon monoxide detectors, more money is spent on policing the welfare system for abuse than on the welfare system itself, and it's always rabbit season. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ravenstryde's national animal is the raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Ravenstryde is ranked 163,206th in the world and 6,743rd in The North Pacific for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 27,106.6 Standard Monetary Units.
