The Federal Republic of Ravenfieldstan is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 274 million Ravenfieldstanians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government is primarily concerned with Education, although Healthcare, Law & Order, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 53.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Ravenfieldstanian economy, worth 4.93 trillion dinars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 17,999 dinars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nudity is frowned upon, travelers often bring empty plastic bottles on Air Ravenfieldstan flights to avoid the pay lavatories, elementary school students are required to master Bach's Chaconne in D before graduation, and biker gangs and fashionistas are converting to Violetism en masse. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ravenfieldstan's national animal is the raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Ravenfieldstan is ranked 97,892nd in the world and 903rd in 10000 Islands for Most Extreme, scoring 18.71 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
