Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Venetoland is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Edward Sheng with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 15.231 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 underdeveloped Venetolandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,243 trillion venetoes a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly 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 147,268 venetoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Streakers swamp all public events in order to bare it all, a National Academy regulates grammar and usage, every week is blindness awareness week, and elderly citizens regularly buy posh multimillion-veneto mansions. 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 180,272nd in the world and 855th in Europe for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 16.11 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
