The Corporation of Veneran is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by CEO John Caves with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, flagrant waste-dumping, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 6.18 billion Venerians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government prioritizes Industry, although Education, Administration, and Defense are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ven Executive. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Veneran economy, worth a remarkable 2,101 trillion energy credits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Soda Sales, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 340,058 energy credits, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,941,120 per year while the poor average 28,873, a ratio of 67.2 to 1.

Prolonged government investigations are a common revenge tactic among spurned significant others, artificial intelligences seeking exciting work are overcome with ennui, the population's jaw muscles put sharks to shame, and chalkboards are replaced with billboards in the classroom. Crime is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Veneran's national animal is the penguin, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Veneran is ranked 637th in the world and 23rd in Osiris for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 405.76 on the Hayek Index.
