The Fylkirate of Ravnabbor is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Fylkir Raven with an even hand, and renowned for its ban on automobiles, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 4.647 billion Ravnabborians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Välˈhälə. The average income tax rate is 98.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Ravnabborian economy, worth 622 trillion USSD Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 133,980 USSD Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

The government seizes private property for the 'good of the people', doctors prescribe medicines but they rarely dispense hope or compassion, emergency room admissions for 'stampede injuries' have skyrocketed since the introduction of weekly Sabbath Eve sales, and the sound of wooden legs echo throughout Ravnabbor after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ravnabbor's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Satanic Paganism.

Ravnabbor is ranked 162,784th in the world and 251st in USSD for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -8.76 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
