The Interstellar Sentinel of Venmere is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Wilhelm Crane with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, ubiquitous missile silos, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 4.914 billion Venmereans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alcuta. The average income tax rate is 92.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Venmerean economy, worth 945 trillion Silvers a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 192,458 Silvers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Short shrift is being given to applications for political asylum from illegal immigrants, refugee camp conversions to Church of Christ of Latter-Day Saints are increasingly common, students who refuse to pray are expelled from school, and billions of Silvers are spent to take high-quality photos of the Peregrine Falcon Nebula. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Venmere's national animal is the Peregrine Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Church of Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

Venmere is ranked 5,681st in the world and 103rd in 10000 Islands for Highest Poor Incomes, with 139,476.67 Standard Monetary Units.
