The Oppressed Peoples of Grave Raven is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Tamika the Death Knight with an even hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, aversion to nipples, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 10.841 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 primarily concerned with Industry, although Defense is also considered important, while Environment and Welfare aren't 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 4,569 trillion triple wolf turns a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Soda Sales, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 421,468 triple wolf turns, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,174,517 per year while the poor average 44,499, a ratio of 48.9 to 1.

Nerdy teenagers have to prove that they're made of the same stuff as their grandparents, photos of picturesque coastal buildings are set against a backdrop of smokestacks and ship hulls, major corporations receive tax breaks for no apparent reason, and the state funds the recreational drug habits of every citizen. 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 Fong, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Grave Raven is ranked 2,557th in the world and 2nd in Nudist Dreamland for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 12,756.81 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
