The Community of La Venko is a huge, safe nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, avant-garde cinema, and irreverence towards religion. The democratic population of 347 million La Venkoans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Environment, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Raŭm. The average income tax rate is 42.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong La Venkoan economy, worth 20.2 trillion Nitraphs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 58,160 Nitraphs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Anti-government political posters adorn every building like wallpaper, convicts released after being found "wrongfully imprisoned" are surprisingly chill about the whole thing, fighter pilots crash out of the air after failing to understand their foreign instruction manuals, and drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking. Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. La Venko's national animal is the goat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

La Venko is ranked 56,362nd in the world and 181st in The Free Nations Region for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 51.48 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
