The United States of Vennos is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by India Saule with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, daily referendums, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 3.423 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 19.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Vennosian economy, worth 649 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 189,801 Vennos Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 624,476 per year while the poor average 43,227, a ratio of 14.4 to 1.

A typical fast food menu item could serve a small army, citizens are frequently held up at gunpoint by their local pizza delivery boys, the hills are alive with the sound of ringtones, and baby boys who pick up pink crayons are sent to a psychiatric ward. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, 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 13,994th in the world and 16th in The Hole To Hide In for Most Armed, with 5.43 Weapons Per Person.
