The Glorious Empire of Venkara is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Sark Salazar with an iron fist, and notable for its digital currency, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 9.855 billion Venkarans 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Industry, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Viqilam. The average income tax rate is 98.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Venkaran economy, worth a remarkable 4,520 trillion Marks a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 458,652 Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The justice of Venkara is considered superior to that of other nations, five-year-olds who refuse to line up on command get gold stars, thieves find battery shops juicier targets than banks, and Sark Salazar can't hear a thing when the unwashed masses throw rocks at the new state limousine. 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 138,829th in the world and 118th in New Western Empire for Most Extreme, scoring 15.38 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
