The United States of Vennos is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by India Saule with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 3.464 billion Vennosians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Venetia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 16.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Vennosian economy, worth 665 trillion Vennos Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 192,200 Vennos Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 628,252 per year while the poor average 44,198, a ratio of 14.2 to 1.

India Saule claims to be the epitome of family values, the government has organised a nationwide cull of infected Sea basses, the official Vennosian Phrase Book weighs as much as a small child, and children are seen fighting in the playground for bread scraps that fall out of diamond-encrusted lunchboxes. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Vennos's national animal is the Sea bass, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Vennos is ranked 5,264th in the world and 14th in The Hole To Hide In for Most Secular, with 98.08 Atheism Rate.
