The Oppressed Peoples of Grave Raven is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Tamika the Death Knight with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, infamous sell-swords, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 6.873 billion power liches are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Terminus. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient officially-undead economy, worth a remarkable 2,269 trillion spider plants a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Arms Manufacturing, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 330,182 spider plants, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,753,109 per year while the poor average 32,853, a ratio of 53.4 to 1.

Elected officials often serve for decades in a single term, the country routinely whitewashes uncomfortable parts of its history, psychological disorders are a taboo subject, and Ollie the Oiled Seal welcomes throngs of tourists to the newly opened Oil Oasis Water Park. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Grave Raven's national animal is the vampire bat, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Grave Raven is ranked 36,048th in the world and 5th in Nudist Dreamland for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 4,503.8 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
