Venossa Beach

Population106 million

CurrencyVenossa dollar

The Allied States of Venossa Beach is a very large, pleasant nation, renowned for its irreverence towards religion. The hard-working population of 106 million Venossa Beachians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 10.4%.

The strong Venossa Beachian economy, worth 6.40 trillion Venossa dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 60,389 Venossa dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 194,769 per year while the poor average 14,163, a ratio of 13.8 to 1.

Employers may fire workers without giving any reason, cotton candy made from genuine cotton cellulose doesn't quite satisfy, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, and the population's jaw muscles put sharks to shame. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Venossa Beach's national animal is the Venossa.

Venossa Beach is ranked 88,452nd in the world and 186th in The Free Nations Region for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 927.82 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
