The Empire of Ravens Crucible is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Corbeau Bonaparte with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, cynical population of 3.181 billion Crucibleans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ravens Point. The average income tax rate is 70.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ravens Cruciblean economy, worth 400 trillion Denaris a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 125,784 Denaris, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians are often seen drinking soft drinks at the end of every public address, the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting, troublemakers boast about how many times they have to visit their therapist, and hospitals fear government fines more than terrorist ransoms. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ravens Crucible's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Morticinism.

Ravens Crucible is ranked 90,530th in the world and 2nd in The Galaktic Empire for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 170,690 Standard Monetary Units.
