The Theocratic Republic of Venkoyo is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Poporeanu Khalofpraiser with an iron fist, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, anti-smoking policies, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.335 billion Venkoyans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Administration, and Law & Order are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Holy City of Edmonton. The average income tax rate is 48.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Venkoyoani economy, worth 202 trillion goldenteeth a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 152,039 goldenteeth, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Venkoyo's national animal is the owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Mistrozen.

Venkoyo is ranked 164,189th in the world and 112th in Institute of Cellulose for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 157.64 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
