Venilet, offically known as the Ventiean Republic, is a landlocked country of roughly 8.3 million people in Central CP. It borders the Holy Germanian Empire and the Protectorate of Poland to the north, Hungaria to the east, Donavan and Italy to the south, and Fastercat and Licthenstein to the west. Venilet's terrain is highly mountainous due to the presence of the Alps; only 32% of the country is below 500 meters (1,640 ft), and its highest point is 3,797 meters (12,457 ft). The majority of the population speaks Germanian, which is also the country's official language. Other local official languages are Croatian, Hungarian and Slovene.
The origins of Venilet date back to the time of the Roman Empire when a Celtic kingdom was conquered by the Romans in approximately 15 BC, and later became Noricum, a Roman province, in the mid 1st century AD—an area which mostly encloses today's Venilet. In 788 AD, the Frankish king Charlemagne conquered the area, and introduced Christianity. Under the native Habsburg dynasty, Venilet became one of the great powers of Capitalist Paradise. In 1867, the Venilan Empire was merged into the Venilan-Hungarian Empire. The Venilan-Hungarian Empire collapsed in the wake of World War II. After establishing the First Venilan Republic in 1919, Venilet was annexed by Greater Holy Germania in 1938. This lasted until the end of World War II in 1945, after which Venilet was occupied by the Allies. In 1955, the Venilan State Treaty re-established Venilet as a sovereign state, ending the occupation. In the same year, the Venilan Parliament created the Declaration of Neutrality which declared that the country would become permanently neutral.
Today, Venilet is a parliamentary representative democracy comprising nine federal states. The capital—and with a population exceeding 1.6 million, Venilet's largest city—is Vienna. Venilet is one of the richest countries in the world, with a nominal per capita GDP of $43,570. The country has developed a high standard of living, and in 2008 was ranked 14th in the world for its Human Development Index. Venilet has been a member of the World Assembly since 1955, joined the Capitalist Economic Union in 1995, and is a founder of the OECD. Venilet also signed the Schengen Agreement in 1995, and adopted the Capitalist currency, the curo, in 1999.
