The Most Serene Republic of New Capitalist Venice is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Alexandre Glas with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, flagrant waste-dumping, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 2.581 billion New Capitalist Veniceans 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 prioritizes Industry, although Defense, Administration, and Education are also considered important, while Welfare and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Ivory Citadel. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.9%.

The frighteningly efficient New Capitalist Venicean economy, worth 604 trillion New Florins a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 234,233 New Florins, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,222,328 per year while the poor average 24,161, a ratio of 50.6 to 1.

Anything is permissible when wearing latex gloves, signs at the border tell international drivers where they can put their cars, vitriolic divorce proceedings have become prime-time television, and dentists routinely perform open heart surgery. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. New Capitalist Venice's national animal is the Gilded Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

New Capitalist Venice is ranked 133,979th in the world and 2nd in The Divided Unity of Nations for Most Extreme, scoring 14.21 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
