The Republic of Venthravene is a massive, genial nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.104 billion Venthraveneans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, liberal, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Welfare, Healthcare, and Administration are also considered important, while Defense receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nilkingham. The average income tax rate is 68.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Venthravenean economy, worth 76.2 trillion stevens a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is 36,211 stevens, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians tend to jump ship to whichever party is currently leading in the polls, the tragedy of the commons is being tested nationwide but everyone says it's somebody else's problem, human tissue is grown in vats as a delicacy as well as for transplants, and unpackaged foodstuffs rot on store shelves. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Venthravene's national animal is the hedgehog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Venthravene is ranked 171,512th in the world and 6,324th in Osiris for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -4.73 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
