The Dictatorship of Venom Bug is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Gama lijah with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.583 billion Venom Bugians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Administration, Law & Order, and Education also on the agenda, while International Aid is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jupiter. The average income tax rate is 96.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Venom Bugian economy, worth a remarkable 1,180 trillion Eyeballs a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 329,598 Eyeballs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Dynamite sales and concert audiences are booming, cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high, the sound of wooden legs echo throughout Venom Bug after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax, and extraordinary rendition is nothing out of the ordinary. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Venom Bug's national animal is the Zombie Beetle, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Venom Hippyllama.

Venom Bug is ranked 29,393rd in the world and 761st in the South Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 102.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
