The Sacred Empire of Venethort is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Seneth Sol with an iron fist, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, parental licensing program, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.252 billion Venethortians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Syntha-Major. The average income tax rate is 60.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Venethortian economy, worth 173 trillion Dinariums a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 138,729 Dinariums, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Things are looking up for patients accidentally prescribed erectile dysfunction medication, religion is strictly forbidden within school grounds, 13-year-old internet trolls are treated as a threat on par with terrorists, and any secret that gets off someone's chest is promptly replaced. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Venethort's national animal is the Makruch, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Atheism.

Venethort is ranked 144,416th in the world and 4,466th in the South Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.72 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
