The Punished One of Raventsvo is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Premier Vadim Sokolov with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, rampant corporate plagiarism, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 8.984 billion Raventsva are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Narodnygrad. The average income tax rate is 99.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Raventsvan economy, worth a remarkable 1,656 trillion Mirrs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Uranium Mining, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 184,403 Mirrs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Libraries are replacing history books and classic novels with technical manuals and trades directories to match the nation's changing demands, community-designed sword prostheses are becoming dangerously common, foreign musicians that Premier Vadim Sokolov dislikes are turned away at the border, and the government advises foreign diplomats to speak softly and carry a big bag of cash. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Raventsvo's national animal is the Bear.

Raventsvo is ranked 93,163rd in the world and 34th in International Northwestern Union for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -4 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
