The Interstellar Republic of Venmere is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Arnold Spencer with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, punitive income tax rates, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed population of 2.1 billion Venmereans 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moccasin. The average income tax rate is 67.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Venmerean economy, worth 241 trillion Silvers a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 114,798 Silvers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

The new one Silver coin also makes a handy throwing-star, cleaners are very careful not to bump into the big red button on Arnold Spencer's desk, the general public only knows their favorite politician's first name, and whales in captivity live in little more than glorified goldfish bowls. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Venmere's national animal is the Preregrine Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Venmere is ranked 49,179th in the world and 240th in 10000 Islands for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 4,028.52 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
