Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Venetoland is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Edward Sheng with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 16.047 billion Venetoes love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

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 2,329 trillion venetoes a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 145,147 venetoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Genetic researchers have been expelled, more money is spent on policing the welfare system for abuse than on the welfare system itself, criminals always seem to be forewarned of police raids, and excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions. 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 86th in the world and 2nd in Europe for Longest Average Lifespans, with 96.17 Years.
