The Empire of West Ravenna is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its public floggings, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 550 million West Ravennans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."
The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while Welfare and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Ravenna. The average income tax rate is 74.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but inefficient West Ravennan economy, worth 34.7 trillion Aureuses a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 63,133 Aureuses, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, phone taps are frequently carried out by the police, people of faith are sent to twelve-step programs for 'The Cure', and the police insist that racism does not exist. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. West Ravenna's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
