The Glorious Empire of Venkara is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Sark Salazar with an iron fist, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, infamous sell-swords, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 12.447 billion Venkarans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Viqilam. The average income tax rate is 99.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Venkaran economy, worth a remarkable 5,633 trillion Marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 452,632 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The VBI Channel Tunnel project is plagued by delays, no personal detail is too tiny for the suede-denim census police, Sark Salazar's media campaigns take a hiatus around exam week, and hidden bedroom-cams are installed to catch mothers doing their kids' homework. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Venkara's national animal is the Swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Religious Freedom.

Venkara is ranked 6,724th in the world and 208th in the South Pacific for Healthiest Citizens, with 17.6 bananas ingested per day.
