OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Republic of Venetoland is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Edward Sheng with an even hand, and renowned for its happy-go-lucky citizens. The compassionate, intelligent population of 10.766 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.

Anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, streakers swamp all public events in order to bare it all, torture is illegal, and travel bureaus double as recruiting centers for national intelligence agencies. 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 5th in Europe and 216th in the world for Highest Police Ratios, scoring 877 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
