The Community of Venusolar is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, digital currency, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.496 billion Venusolarians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 73.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Venusolarian economy, worth 163 trillion Solars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 65,658 Solars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Prison visits increase substantially during election years, advertisers are struggling to make water sound cool to a twitchy public, a primitive society is being eroded as its youth flock to the modern world, and the Venusolarian delegation to the World Assembly is having a hard time convincing people that international law will "pay for itself somehow...". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Venusolar's national animal is the Manta Ray, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Venusolar is ranked 236,002nd in the world and 285th in Spiritus for Most Armed, with 0.15 Weapons Per Person.
