The Republic of Venetoland is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Edward Sheng with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, digital currency, and strictly enforced bedtime. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 18.432 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, socially-minded, outspoken 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 2,296 trillion venetoes a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 124,576 venetoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

New safety regulations require all cars manufactured in Venetoland to be bombproof, the horniness of the great-horned panda is considered a national priority, farting etiquette is taught in schools, and politicians have seen a significant reduction in followers on their social media accounts. 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 22nd in the world and 1st in Europe for Safest, scoring 248.74 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
