The Absurd Memory of Ravendi is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Fern Coptrai with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, smutty television, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate population of 5.243 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 income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Ravendian economy, worth a remarkable 1,208 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 230,483 Ranars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are exhausted from weekly general elections, the government is promoting multicultural values with the new 'Just Be Nice, OK?' initiative, space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space, and recent protests against birds flying too low have resulted in bloodshed. 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 197,950th in the world and 9,277th in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -12.69 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
