FaithThe Order of the Raven


The Order of The Raven is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Raven with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, zero percent divorce rate, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 9.611 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 72.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ravenian economy, worth a remarkable 1,245 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. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 129,579 Claws, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 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 116,360th in the world and 23rd in The Hole for Most Politically Free, scoring 27.14 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
