The Ravishing Republic of Raviolistan is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Meatballhead with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, ritual sacrifices, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 15.289 billion Raviolistanians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Law & Order, with Healthcare, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Raviolistangrad. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.7%.

The all-consuming Raviolistanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,587 trillion ravioloes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Furniture Restoration, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 103,811 ravioloes, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 441,419 per year while the poor average 15,723, a ratio of 28.1 to 1.

Seven-year-olds debate for weeks on the merits of the Oxford comma, the team in charge of creating a new writing system have spent months deciding whether or not to use serif or sans-serif characters, the Liberal Progressive and Progressive Liberal parties swear that they have totally different ideologies, and even religious militants can be swayed by the power of #love. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Raviolistan's national animal is the panda, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Raviolistanism.

Raviolistan is ranked 26,142nd in the world and 47th in The Land of Kings and Emperors for Most Avoided, scoring 183.31 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
