Vene Gra

Population1.031 billion

LeaderVene Erici Fiti


The Vene Ericidom of Vene Gra is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Vene Erici Fiti with an iron fist, and notable for its lack of airports, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.031 billion Vene Granians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gra. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 90.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Vene Granian economy, worth 88.9 trillion Horns a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Gambling, and Trout Farming. Average income is 86,207 Horns, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.

Vene Erici Fiti has been seen stealthily slicing fifths off bread loaves, the best fashion comes straight to the high street from sweatshops all across the globe, if a tree falls in the forest and nobody is there to hear it... Vene Granian satellites can detect it, and an increasing number of animal species are named 'Bob'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vene Gra's national animal is the Chameleon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Vene Gra is ranked 17,077th in the world and 860th in The North Pacific for Largest Governments, scoring 27.95 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
