The Republic of Venetoland is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Edward Sheng with a fair hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, anti-smoking policies, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 17.423 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 inefficient Venetolandian economy, worth a remarkable 2,680 trillion venetoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 153,826 venetoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.
Moonshine has made a resurgence, the nation faces constant invasions by foreign boy bands, the government is promoting multicultural values with the new 'Just Be Nice, OK?' initiative, and advertisements for jobs in the sciences run in fashion magazines. 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.
