The Republic of Ravenwan is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 631 million Ravenwanians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Souzy-la-Briche. The average income tax rate is 85.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The strong Ravenwanian economy, worth 43.6 trillion Ecus a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 69,058 Ecus, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
There have been sightings of people walking around dressed in nothing but leopard-skin g-strings for 'religious reasons', the nation's taxpayers pay for foreign government's extravagances, in musicals everybody's a little bit racist, and snap elections are called over every minor impasse. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ravenwan's national animal is the lazy cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
