The Glorious Empire of Venkara is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Sark Salazar with an even hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, vat-grown people, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 6.66 billion Venkarans 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, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Industry, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Viqilam. The average income tax rate is 97.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Venkaran economy, worth a remarkable 1,946 trillion Marks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 292,216 Marks, with the richest citizens earning 6.0 times as much as the poorest.

Dogman-branded weapons are all the rage in the militaristic comic-book community, the country is preparing for war, the new 'Things We Stole From Other Countries' exhibition at the National Museum of Antiquities is a hit, and unemployed taxi drivers ironically use self-driving cabs to reach employment offices. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Venkara's national animal is the Swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Religious Freedom.

Venkara is ranked 11,652nd in the world and 6th in Northern Utopia for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 5,703.85 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
