OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Venetoland is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Edward Sheng with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. The compassionate population of 10.58 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.

Venetoland has been recently classified as an international menace after 'liberating' several nearby territories, there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, meat-eating is frowned upon, and citizens select which government department gets their income tax venetoes each year. 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 102nd in the world for Best Weather, with 1,434 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
