Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Kingdom of Venutia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minister Forest Maddox with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 6.803 billion Venutians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Venutiana. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Venutian economy, worth a remarkable 1,374 trillion Venutian Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an amazing 202,105 Venutian Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 658,483 per year while the poor average 46,699, a ratio of 14.1 to 1.

The government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life, in a desperate bid for cheap airfare Venutians can be seen jogging in a rubber suit just before flying, Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Venutiana to enjoy their national art, and children as young as eight can be found working in factories. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Venutia's national animal is the 9 Legged Unicorn, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Secularism.

Venutia is ranked 43,067th in the world and 2,198th in The North Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 86.8 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
