LeaderEmperor Ashir of House Zalet


The Constitutional Monarchy of Ventel is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Ashir of House Zalet with an even hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, free-roaming dinosaurs, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The compassionate, devout population of 983 million Ventelians 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, Healthcare, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ubo-Obasi. The average income tax rate is 67.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ventelian economy, worth 112 trillion shanars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 114,545 shanars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Military equipment stores have a tendency to go up in flames, legislation sometimes has to battle through weeks of filibustering to pass, the minority inevitably have their addenda vetoed, and gangs of political bullies tell minority voices to "shut up because we say so". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ventel's national animal is the Elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ventel is ranked 31,733rd in the world and 1,653rd in Balder for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 5,165.95 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
