The Interstellar Republic of Venmere is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Arnold Spencer with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, otherworldly petting zoo, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 2.129 billion Venmereans 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, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moccasin. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 67.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Venmerean economy, worth 246 trillion Silvers a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 115,930 Silvers, with the richest citizens earning 7.8 times as much as the poorest.

Calling out of the blue has become taboo, the Venmerean basket weaving sector is on the brink of collapse as cheap imports flood the market, the government spends millions of Silvers every year prosecuting spammers, and sanitary products are sold in brown paper at hairdressers' salons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Venmere's national animal is the Preregrine Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Venmere is ranked 149,151st in the world and 687th in 10000 Islands for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 254.65 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
