The Nomadic Peoples of Ravens Khalasar is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The cynical population of 261 million Ravens Khalasarians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.
The enormous, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 56.4%.
The sizeable but underdeveloped Ravens Khalasarian economy, worth 7.76 trillion ayahuascas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming, Furniture Restoration, Arms Manufacturing, and Pizza Delivery. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 29,729 ayahuascas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.
Interest in globalism never flags, exorbitant spending on icebreakers breaks the ice at every budget meeting, disability advocates are not amused that they are told to be dependent on Ravens Khalasarians's kindness, and the nationalistic national anthem inspires citizens to literally spit at foreigners. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ravens Khalasar's national animal is the Raven.
