The Republic of Venetoland is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Edward Sheng with an even hand, and notable for its digital currency, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 17.688 billion Venetoes are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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 2,798 trillion venetoes a year, is extremely 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 158,206 venetoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Marijuana is legal in the privacy of your own home, hedge fund managers are diversifying into herbaceous borders, bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms, and international tensions are high as Venetoland threatens any government with the audacity to arrest its citizens. 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 123,591st in the world and 792nd in Europe for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.99 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
