The ㅤㅤㅤㅤ of Small Venezia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Loís Deleuze with an iron fist, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, deadly medical pandemics, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.38 billion Maracuchos are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Maracaibo and Paraguaipoa. The average income tax rate is 90.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Marabino economy, worth 150 trillion Silver Coins a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, extremely specialized black market in Basket Weaving and Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 109,037 Silver Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A government program is underway to revitalize Small Venezia's beaches, literature classes frequently go on field trips to rock concerts, the nation's generous tax credits have brought all the film studios to the yard, and political spontaneity takes a lot of planning. Crime is almost non-existent. Small Venezia's national animal is the Monkulonseerü, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catharism.

Small Venezia is ranked 225,863rd in the world and 4,793rd in The North Pacific for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -7.22 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
