The Oppressed Peoples of Grave Raven is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Tamika the Death Knight with an even hand, and notable for its aversion to nipples, daily referendums, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 7.564 billion power liches are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, with Environment and Welfare not funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Terminus. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient officially-undead economy, worth a remarkable 2,620 trillion spider plants a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Arms Manufacturing, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 346,422 spider plants, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,720,965 per year while the poor average 39,448, a ratio of 43.6 to 1.

Oracles predict landslide victories for Tamika the Death Knight for the next 50 years, NationStates is now a popular brand of laxatives despite Max Barry's protests, city budgets are spent entirely on supporting the town royalty, and there is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Grave Raven's national animal is the vampire bat, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Grave Raven is ranked 233,067th in the world and 58th in Nudist Dreamland for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring -54.5 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
