The Commonwealth of Islands Of Ventro is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 597 million Islands Of Ventroanoanoans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Island City. The average income tax rate is 66.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Islands Of Ventroanoanoanoan economy, worth 61.8 trillion Vens a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 103,568 Vens, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People regularly disappear off the streets and all evidence of them is destroyed, people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, Islands Of Ventroanoanoanoan watches list strained wrists as a common side effect, and finding half a worm in your apple is an arrestable offense. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Islands Of Ventro's national animal is the Ghost Doge, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Islands Of Ventro is ranked 16,103rd in the world and 18th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 3,713.31 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
