Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Republic of Venetoland is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Edward Sheng with an even hand, and remarkable for its strictly enforced bedtime, daily referendums, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 11.737 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, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thomasville. The income tax rate is 100%.

The large but stagnant Venetolandian economy, worth 217 trillion venetoes a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 18,564 venetoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Edward Sheng's mistress is the belle at many state balls, teachers are routinely tested to keep their jobs, the government seizes private property for the 'good of the people', and businesses are forced to bring all work back within the nation's borders. 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 388th in Europe and 142,923rd in the world for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -14 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
