LeaderHead Raven


The Kingdom of Raviani is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Head Raven with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 1.564 billion Ravianians 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, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Obsidian. The average income tax rate is 90.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ravianian economy, worth 183 trillion florins 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 dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 117,143 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Turning the other cheek is accompanied by a polite letter of complaint, religious education is a new government priority, Head Raven is too busy listening to praise to get any work done, and sometimes a single pallbearer is all you need. Crime is totally unknown. Raviani's national animal is the raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Freedom.

Raviani is ranked 236,255th in the world and 12,187th in The North Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.45 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
