The Republic of Ravenwan is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its state-planned economy, daily referendums, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 434 million Ravenwanians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Souzy-la-Briche. The average income tax rate is 83.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The Ravenwanian economy, worth 25.4 trillion Ecus a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 58,572 Ecus, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms, popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs, the Finance Ministry posts hourly updates on where taxpayer money is spent, and Bigtopian interference in domestic elections is always democratically sanctioned. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ravenwan's national animal is the lazy cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
