The Flying Dutchman of Ravania Secunda is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Rogier Ravenclaw I with an iron fist, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, suspicion of poets, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 23.215 billion Ravania Secundans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nieuw Ravania. The average income tax rate is 68.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ravania Secundan economy, worth a remarkable 3,617 trillion Claws a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 155,809 Claws, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Landfills fill the land, legislators work 24/7 due to an influx of single-issue bills, political activists are routinely executed, and families consisting of more than three people are forced to split up. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ravania Secunda's national animal is the Raven, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is the Circle of The Raven.

Ravania Secunda is ranked 4,622nd in the world and 31st in Nederland for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 10,254.49 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
