“Peace through strength, law, and order.”

The Great Bulwark of Venaque is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by President Leo Constant with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons. Its hard-nosed, hard-working population of 5.127 billion enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Defence, although Education and Law & Order are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aequoss. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 58%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Book Publishing and Arms Manufacturing.
Electrocution deaths among computer technicians are at an all-time high, recruitment posters proclaim the army to be both fabulous and fashionable, photographers have to apply for a license to photograph President Leo Constant, and torture is commonly used to extract information from suspected criminals. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Venaque's national animal is the Oegrund, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the Iyen.
