The Most Serene Theocratic State of Saints Maleficent and Ravenna is a massive, orderly nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, state-planned economy, and restrictive gun laws. The cynical population of 1.133 billion Goths 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, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 40.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Gothic economy, worth 27.8 trillion royal spoons 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 slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, and Retail. 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 24,517 royal spoons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Saints Maleficent and Ravenna's national animal is the raven, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Saints Maleficent and Ravenna is ranked 216,113th in the world and 1st in The Arsenal for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring -9.9 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
