The Hmmmmm of Veniyerris is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Clark Lewis with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, daily referendums, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, devout population of 6.899 billion Veniyerrisians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of London. The average income tax rate is 46.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Veniyerrisian economy, worth 518 trillion Pounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Tourism. Average income is 75,184 Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Workers for the environmental protection agency are patted down for tartar sauce every morning, the government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, proper policy proposals prerequire professional peer-reviewed papers, and all the playground's a stage for Veniyerrisian schoolchildren. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Veniyerris's national animal is the Possum, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Mormonism.

Veniyerris is ranked 28,784th in the world and 1,291st in The North Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 949.56 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
