The United States of Vennos is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by India Saule with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, vat-grown people, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 3.446 billion Vennosians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Venetia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 16.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Vennosian economy, worth 658 trillion Vennos Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 191,129 Vennos Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 634,043 per year while the poor average 43,001, a ratio of 14.7 to 1.

The government has begun breaking all large businesses into thousands of mom-and-pop general stores, children gain their first sex education from reading the dictionary, Vennosian police have to pay out of their own pockets for bulletproof vests, and the Vennos Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Vennos's national animal is the Sea bass, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Vennos is ranked 29,923rd in the world and 40th in The Hole To Hide In for Highest Economic Output, with 658 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
