The Republic of Venetoland is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Edward Sheng with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 13.89 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, 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 1,985 trillion venetoes a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 142,933 venetoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Businesses that prove successful are immediately broken up, Venetoland has been recently classified as an international menace after 'liberating' several nearby territories, businesses are forced to bring all work back within the nation's borders, and a well-funded social safety net protects the unfortunate. 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.
