The Ravagery of The Great Devourer of All is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by The Devourer with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, public floggings, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.121 billion multispecies slaves are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the Homeverse. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 16.7%.

The very strong Great Devourer of Allian economy, worth 465 trillion Petadeaths a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Pizza Delivery, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 65,377 Petadeaths, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 332,287 per year while the poor average 7,115, a ratio of 46.7 to 1.

The Devourer has been self-declared as the Most Supreme Magnificent Overlord of Everything You Ever Saw, immigrant herding has become a national pastime, the government spends twice as much reclaiming lost settlements from the sea as it could've on coastal defences, and The Devourer is the self-declared God of all The Great Devourer of All. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force. The Great Devourer of All's national animal is the jellyfish, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is leader worship.

The Great Devourer of All is ranked 51,692nd in the world and 3rd in Omniversal Giants Mark II for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 80.58 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
