OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Venetoland is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Edward Sheng with a fair hand, and renowned for its devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, intelligent population of 10.072 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.

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.

The "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Thomasville Times is sold out, roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, the mining industry has taken a hit from tighter environmental regulations, and birth rates have hit an all-time low. 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 406th in Europe and 111,819th in the world for Most Average, scoring -4,902 on the Average Standarized Normality Scale.
