The Plaid Dad of Venico is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Venico with an iron fist, and notable for its enslaved workforce, suspicion of poets, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.272 billion Romulans are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Industry, Education, and Administration are also considered important, while Welfare and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Romule. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Romulan economy, worth 967 trillion GPS a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 133,043 GPS, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,011,432 per year while the poor average 4,853, a ratio of 208 to 1.

Hidden bedroom-cams are installed to catch mothers doing their kids' homework, on graduation day the hats thrown in the air fly high enough to stun passing pigeons, old dogs don't have to learn new tricks but they have to prove they haven't forgotten old ones, and cubicles often double as graves as citizens literally work themselves to death. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Venico's national animal is the Elk, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Worship of Malrock.

Venico is ranked 9,706th in the world and 13th in The Brotherhood of Malice for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring 7,495.38 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
