The Republic of Ravenwan is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, state-planned economy, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic population of 392 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 Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Souzy-la-Briche. The average income tax rate is 82.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Ravenwanian economy, worth 22.5 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 57,423 Ecus, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Referenda are held for every conceivable government action, travel bureaus double as recruiting centers for national intelligence agencies, unwary hikers climbing the bluffs of Mount Souzy-la-Briche make great practice for foreign snipers, and the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall. 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.

Ravenwan is ranked 6,570th in the world and 426th in The North Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 10,270.24 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
