The Night Father of Venico is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Venico with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, flagrant waste-dumping, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.718 billion Romulans are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Romule. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Romulan economy, worth a remarkable 2,344 trillion GPS a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 218,773 GPS, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,999,173 per year while the poor average 2,615, a ratio of 764 to 1.

Homeless people can be found sleeping on streets in front of unoccupied second homes, the single fish caught by Romulan fishers last year is cited as evidence of Venico's thriving fisheries, 90% of active duty VAF personnel have been laid off and replaced by robot kill-drones, and Romulans believe manners maketh the leader. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Venico's national animal is the Elk, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Worship of the Overseer.

Venico is ranked 306th in the world and 3rd in The Brotherhood of Malice for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 764.27 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
