The Absurd Memory of Ravendi is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Fern Coptrai with an even hand, and renowned for its parental licensing program, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 3.471 billion Ravendians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kalkutis. The average income tax rate is 99.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Ravendian economy, worth 711 trillion Ranars 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 Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 204,909 Ranars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Mandatory neutering has made purebred dogs a thing of the past, park rangers struggle to deal with a rash of stolen pic-a-nic baskets, it's a long jump to get onto the housing ladder, and the government spends millions of Ranars every year prosecuting spammers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ravendi's national animal is the Muskrat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ravendi is ranked 153,568th in the world and 6,239th in The East Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -11.05 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
