The Glorious Empire of Venkara is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Sark Salazar with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, sprawling nuclear power plants, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.687 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, with Education, Industry, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Viqilam. The average income tax rate is 98.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Venkaran economy, worth a remarkable 3,809 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 438,584 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

People reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, Venkara recently hosted the least successful trade negotiations since The Phantom Menace, citizens must pay to enjoy Venkara's pristine beaches, and children must be board certified to append "Jr" to their name. 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 825th in the world and 4th in New Western Empire for Highest Poor Incomes, with 237,839.45 Standard Monetary Units.
