The Allied States of Venossa Beach is a huge, pleasant nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 287 million Venossa Beachians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.
The relatively small, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 11.8%.
The strong Venossa Beachian economy, worth 16.5 trillion Venossa dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 57,518 Venossa dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 185,894 per year while the poor average 13,449, a ratio of 13.8 to 1.
Cotton candy made from genuine cotton cellulose doesn't quite satisfy, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, the population's jaw muscles put sharks to shame, and homeowners on prime real estate have been seen dodging giant bulldozers with cartoon characters painted on them. Crime is moderate, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. Venossa Beach's national animal is the Venossa, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
