The Commonwealth of Ravenstan is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Comrade Abzal Askarin with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 3.409 billion Ravenstanis enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ayaru. The average income tax rate is 76.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Ravenstanian economy, worth 352 trillion Ravenstani roubles 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 led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 103,448 Ravenstani roubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Astronauts take one small step for Ravenstan and one giant step backward from confrontation, military equipment stores have a tendency to go up in flames, incompetent former soldiers have been re-employed as incompetent cleaners and kitchen staff, and the "feminist protest" defence is increasingly common for cases of armed robbery. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ravenstan's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Ravenstan is ranked 20,171st in the world and 57th in USSD for Safest, scoring 112.8 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
