Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Venetoland is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Edward Sheng with an even hand, and remarkable for its strictly enforced bedtime, smutty television, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 14.254 billion Venetoes are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked 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 inefficient Venetolandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,218 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 155,608 venetoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Punitive tariffs protect local industry, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, the government recently relinquished its monopoly on the mail service, and medical lawsuits are out of control. 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 146,984th in the world and 597th in Europe for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -18.87 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
