The Republic of Ravenhood is a massive, orderly nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, compulsory gun ownership, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.385 billion Ravenhoodians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 21.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Ravenhoodian economy, worth 118 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. Average income is 85,239 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Copies of the constitution are used as toilet paper, unemployed political consultants and advertisers spend every election night weeping for the good old days, cooking with water and baking soda is considered patent infringement, and the roundel of the Ravenhoodian Air Force has become an internationally recognized symbol of destruction. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Ravenhood's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Ravenhood is ranked 130,027th in the world and 5,465th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.06 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
