The Republic of Ravenstryde is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its public floggings, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 725 million Ravenstrydeans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Branwen. The average income tax rate is 50.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Ravenstrydean economy, worth 32.7 trillion florins a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 45,155 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The police turn a blind eye to desecration if it's done in the name of religion or protest, it takes months to get the proper permits for a child's first tricycle, the contraband cigarette trade is lighting up across Ravenstryde, and the WhoTube comments section has gone strangely quiet. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ravenstryde's national animal is the raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Ravenstryde is ranked 195,292nd in the world and 7,295th in The North Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 59,860 Standard Monetary Units.
