Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Venetoland is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Edward Sheng with a fair hand, and notable for its digital currency, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 14.612 billion Venetoes love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thomasville. The income tax rate is 100%.

The enormous but underdeveloped Venetolandian economy, worth a remarkable 1,925 trillion venetoes a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 131,773 venetoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Businesses that prove successful are immediately broken up, Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Thomasville to enjoy their national art, the government regularly publishes lengthy reports on its own excessive recordkeeping, and wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms. 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.

Venetoland is ranked 784th in the world and 17th in Europe for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 13,437.2 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
