The Most Serene Republic of New Capitalist Venice is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Alexandre Glas with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, free-roaming dinosaurs, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 847 million 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 juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Ivory Citadel. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.5%.

The frighteningly efficient New Capitalist Venicean economy, worth 150 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 Gambling. Average income is an impressive 177,514 New Florins, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 807,872 per year while the poor average 23,845, a ratio of 33.9 to 1.

The nation's youth is held blameless for all crimes, the legislature keeps promising "more study" of corruption allegations against the parliamentary whip system, rumour has it Alexandre Glas needs a calculator to multiply ten by ten, and machine-peeled candied grapes come in individual packaging for the busy commuter. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. New Capitalist Venice's national animal is the Gilded Wolf, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

New Capitalist Venice is ranked 151,102nd in the world and 7th in The Divided Unity of Nations for Most Pacifist, with 4.3 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
