The United Provinces of Ventelia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by André Vincenzo Dumont with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, pith helmet sales, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 15.946 billion Ventelians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Flouse. The average income tax rate is 66.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ventelic economy, worth a remarkable 2,687 trillion Argels a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 168,517 Argels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Refugees from other nations are flocking to Ventelia's border, election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes, the delay between passed legislation and real world implementation is often a decade or longer, and the Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters. Crime is totally unknown. Ventelia's national animal is the Leudon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ventelia is ranked 237,167th in the world and 1,286th in Europe for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring -11.4 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
