Raven Heights

Population440 million


The Republic of Raven Heights is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its pith helmet sales and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 440 million Raveneans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 19.6%.

The strong Raven Heightsian economy, worth 27.8 trillion Ravens a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Gambling, and Trout Farming. Average income is 63,288 Ravens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

The nightly news reports prosaically on the government blindly throwing money at despotic kidnappers, a new Brasilistani government has become a daily report on the main evening news, the nation's armed forces are recruiting thousands to help colonise Brasilistan, and the nation has gained millions of new citizens overnight. Crime is totally unknown. Raven Heights's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Raven Heights is ranked 72,034th in the world and 3,282nd in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 58.7 on the Human Development Index.
