The Interstellar Republic of Venmere is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Arnold Spencer with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, public floggings, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 2.164 billion Venmereans 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moccasin. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 67.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Venmerean economy, worth 260 trillion Silvers a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 120,482 Silvers, with the richest citizens earning 9.8 times as much as the poorest.

Lending money has become a major liability, agricultural science is the most competitive subject at universities, government employees have reverted to carrier pigeon due to never-ending virus scans, and Venmerean companies generally just fire employees in lieu of giving them vacation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Venmere's national animal is the Preregrine Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Venmere is ranked 193,784th in the world and 873rd in 10000 Islands for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -4.88 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
