The Republic of Ravenwan is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 564 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, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Souzy-la-Briche. The average income tax rate is 83.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The Ravenwanian economy, worth 37.5 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 quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 66,507 Ecus, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Translators have been hired to deal with the varying regional accents during national political debates, it is technically inaccurate to call the dead 'worm food', escalators are avoided at all costs, and family isn't who you're born with but who you abandon in foreign countries. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a 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.
