OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Venetoland is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Edward Sheng with an even hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, intelligent population of 10.444 billion Venetoes are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thomasville. The average income tax rate is 100%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Citizens select which government department gets their income tax venetoes each year, the nation's massive battleships are often mistaken for islands, Venetoland's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, and the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Venetoland's national animal is the panda, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the veneto.

Venetoland is ranked 4th in Europe and 109th in the world for Best Weather, with 1,402 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
