The Absurd Memory of Ravendi is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Fern Coptrai with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, keen interest in outer space, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate population of 5.67 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 1,335 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 highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 235,552 Ranars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Confessions don't count if suffixed with "izzle", going on a diet invalidates your passport, all recreational drugs are legal, and the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms. 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 219,909th in the world and 9,979th in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -1228.82 on the Hayek Index.
