The Galactic Republic of Ventus Prime is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Chancellor Shadow with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, anti-smoking policies, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, hard-working, cheerful population of 3.618 billion Ventuans 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 Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Galactic City. The average income tax rate is 83.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ventuan economy, worth 782 trillion credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 216,188 credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Pictures of government employees with expensive Pearbooks 'working' on exotic beaches dominate local tabloids, graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation', libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, and droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ventus Prime's national animal is the Blue Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Jedi Order.

Ventus Prime is ranked 157,945th in the world and 199th in New Western Empire for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -19.36 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
