The Kingdom of Ventalia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by First Minister Francois Dubois with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, national health service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 11.327 billion Ventalians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Montnoire. The average income tax rate is 84.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ventalian economy, worth a remarkable 3,606 trillion réals a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 318,371 réals, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It's surprisingly hard to find pictures of the bad haircuts from First Minister Francois Dubois's childhood, classes at Montnoire University get canceled on Brancaland's Independence Day, it's said that First Minister Francois Dubois can turn every pleasure into a chore, and a bureaucratic fight over VIA cafeteria food expenditures has caused the temporary suspension of all agency counterintelligence operations. Crime is totally unknown. Ventalia's national animal is the fallow deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ventalia is ranked 90,105th in the world and 10th in Lorania for Most Extreme, scoring 20.67 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
