Vene Gra

Population854 million

LeaderVene Erici Fiti


The Vene Ericidom of Vene Gra is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Vene Erici Fiti with an iron fist, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 854 million Vene Granians 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 enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gra. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 83.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Vene Granian economy, worth 72.2 trillion Horns a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving and Trout Farming. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 84,600 Horns, with the richest citizens earning 6.0 times as much as the poorest.

Elderly citizens regularly buy posh multimillion-Horn mansions, one does not simply walk into the tundra, Vene Erici Fiti's new door-knocking campaign has the sweet taste of success, and Chekhov's guns are killing the entertainment budget. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vene Gra's national animal is the Chameleon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Vene Gra is ranked 200,116th in the world and 7,969th in The North Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -5.4 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
