The Order of The Raven is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Raven with an iron fist, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 11.995 billion Ravenians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Raventown. The average income tax rate is 72.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Ravenian economy, worth a remarkable 1,549 trillion Claws a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 129,184 Claws, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, citizens are encouraged to report friends, family members or co-workers who seem depressed to the government for "counselling", even doll houses and dog kennels have to be able to withstand rigorous earthquake testing, and the nation has an international reputation for compassion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Raven's national animal is the raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is The Order of the Raven.

The Raven is ranked 72,131st in the world and 8th in The Hole for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 4,495.84 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
