The Dictatorship of Venom Bug is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Gama lijah with an iron fist, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, ritual sacrifices, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.807 billion Venom Bugians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Administration, Law & Order, and Education are also considered important, while International Aid receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jupiter. The average income tax rate is 95.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Venom Bugian economy, worth a remarkable 1,222 trillion Eyeballs a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 321,068 Eyeballs, with the richest citizens earning 9.1 times as much as the poorest.

Years of counter-terrorism planning are foiled by small details, the nation's drinking water tends to glow green at night, it is mandatory to learn evolution in schools, and veterans in wheelchairs are left waist-deep in rice paddies to gather grain. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Venom Bug's national animal is the Zombie Beetle, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Venom Hippyllama.

Venom Bug is ranked 12,769th in the world and 421st in the South Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 1,406.17 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
