The Interstellar Capitalists of Venmere is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Arnold Spencer with an even hand, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, compulsory military service, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 2.595 billion Venmereans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moccasin. The average income tax rate is 71.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Venmerean economy, worth 377 trillion Silvers a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 145,478 Silvers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Nude art is becoming wildly popular, garden stores are not allowed to sell water butts, search and rescue forces now accept cheques and all major credit cards, and spoiler warnings are now given out before political speeches. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Venmere's national animal is the Preregrine Falcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Venmere is ranked 209,836th in the world and 934th in 10000 Islands for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -12.25 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
